(Harrisburg) -- A midstate dairy that supplies raw milk around the country has been linked to two cases of listeriosis, one of them fatal.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says one person in California and one in Florida became infected from raw milk in 2014.

The Florida victim died.

The source is believed to be milk from Miller's Organic Farm located in Bird-in-Hand in Lancaster County.

Miller's Organic Farm isn't licensed by or inspected by the state agriculture department. It doesn't do retail sales but does business via mail order to a membership club.

Owner Amos Miller says the company is still selling raw milk and hasn't gotten any complaints from members.
