Whatcom milk under seige

Grace Harbor Farms here in Custer, Washington, came into the spotlight today when some of the unpasteurized milk they bottled on September 12 gave two children E.coli infections. As seen in The Seattle Times article:
All of the milk had been pulled from store shelves Thursday, but officials warned consumers to discard any Grace Harbor Farms milk that they still have. DNA analysis showed that E. coli from both of the sickened children were the same strain, said Kathryn Smith, an epidemiologist for the state Department of Health.
Grace Harbor Farms is a local Christian family farm and a source for both goat milk products and the cow milk that is under scrutiny. Their Web site just updated an hour or so ago with more information on the current state testing and recall.

I heard about that on the radio. We don't sell our milk to the public. By the way, your blog is really hard to read.

Thanks for the note. I'll take it as another signal for me to edit the colorscheme unless you have further ideas.
