Belle Fourche dairy resumes selling raw milk

Posted: Updated:

BELLE FOURCHE, S.D. (AP) - A Belle Fourche dairy that was ordered to stop sales last week after bacteria was found in a sample has been given the OK to sell its unpasteurized milk again.

The state Agriculture Department ordered Black Hills Milk to halt sales after a bacteria that can cause food poisoning was found in the sample. Dairy owner Dawn Habeck said the dairy was retested Thursday and given the go-ahead to resume sales Monday.

Habeck says the brief shutdown cost the dairy about $3,000. She also wonders if sales will suffer, though she says the dairy has been inundated with support from customers. She estimates the dairy has about 2,000 customers.
