PIERRE, S.D. — The South Dakota Department of Agriculture announces Jerseydale Farms of Brookings, S.D., has resumed distribution of bottled raw milk.

Jerseydale Farms’ permit was suspended on Jan. 21 after a positive test for Listeria from a sample of bottled raw milk. A follow-up sample was collected and tested negative for Listeria.

Further testing of the original sample determined the species to be Listeria innocua. This species of Listeria is generally not considered pathogenic bacteria.
