According to a State Department of Agriculture press release:

Raw milk is milk that has not been pasteurized or homogenized.  Pennsylvania farms selling raw milk must be permitted and inspected to reduce health risks associated with the unpasteurized products. In 2006, Fisher’s Dairy gave up its raw milk permit, but state inspectors found that the dairy had begun selling raw milk again without a permit.

Milk samples which tested positive for Listeria, were taken from the dairy farm on March 6.  The Agriculture Department has also warned that if people who consumed the raw milk become ill, they should consult their physicians.
