A Longmont dairy connected to the illnesses of 30 people is being allowed to continue selling raw goat milk after complying with criteria set by county health officials.
Billy Goat Dairy owner Bill Campbell says he plans to resume selling the raw goat milk next week.
Boulder County Public Health officials previously ordered Campbell to stop selling the raw milk after samples tested positive for strains of campylobacter and E. coli.
The dairy sells milk to 43 households that buy a "share" of a goat for $40 a month in return for a gallon of raw milk a week. The county health department says Campbell has met safety conditions to continue selling the milk. Still, the county asked Campbell to inform people about the risks of drinking raw milk.
