YORK, S.C. (AP) -- A federal agency is warning people not to drink raw milk from a South Carolina dairy because of a bacterial illness but the owner of the dairy says her products are germ-free.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says it has confirmed three North Carolina cases of campylobacteriosis that's associated with raw milk from the Tucker Adkins Dairy in York, S.C.

But dairy owner Carolyn Adkins says South Carolina health officials have told her that samples of her dairy's milk are free of the bacterial illness that can infect the gastrointestinal system.

Spokesman Adam Myrick of the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control says they're still waiting for lab results to come back. He says it's legal to sell raw milk in the state.

    Where can I go to buy Raw milk? It is the BEST for you unless you are lactose intolerant.

    So are there great big letters on the milk jug telling where the milk came from, or does it have a dancing cow pop out of the jug telling you not to drink the milk????

      Most of those that drink raw milk know their supplier well. This isn't something you can go into any Food Lion and buy.

      This is milk straight out of the cow. Just be sure it wasn`t a bull.
