It has been reported that eight new cases of those suffering from E. coli have been detected in Hennepin County.
The Health Department had already warned the people not to drink unrefined milk or eat cheese from Gibbon farms, as a number of people tested positive with E. coli virus had consumed the products from Gibbon farms.
They were informed to drink or consume other dairy products, which are pasteurized and free from bacteria and are safer to eat or drink.
Reports disclosed that out of the two children who were infected with the virus after the intake of dairy products on May 26, 27, one of them was discharged from the hospital after three days.
The officials from the Department of Health are examining the Gibbon farms and till now, they have found three samples of compost having similar features of bacteria that was found in infected patients.
State Agriculture Department officials said, "So far, 28 environmental and animal samples from the farm have tested positive for harmful E. coli, including 26 with the same genetic signature of the pathogen found in the sick consumers".
Hartmann can continue to sell milk and its products on the farm till Health Department does not give any verdict in the case.
