The Hartford Courant recently reported on a RisCassi & Davis case involving two families who are suing a Simsbury dairy farm and Whole Foods of West Hartford after their young children became deathly ill in July 2008 from E. coli bacteria in raw milk. The article can be found here. The three children were all hospitalized with two of them suffering from kidney failure. The milk was produced by the Community Dairy of Simsbury and sold by Whole Foods. The Connecticut Department of Public Health investigated this outbreak and discovered that fourteen people were made sick by this milk.
