Wolf Administration Warns Consumers to Discard Tainted Raw Milk from Warren County Dairy


Harrisburg, PA – Consumers who purchased raw whole milk from Pot ‘O Gold Dairy Specialties in Bear Lake, Warren County from September 10 to present should immediately discard the milk. Milk was sold in glass half gallon containers with the Pot O’ Gold label at 16 stores in Crawford, Erie, McKean, Venango, and Warren counties.
