Dairy linked to 3 deaths, miscarriage

When I was much younger (much) we lived in Great Britain. The milk was delivered to our porch step in glass bottles. Many days it was so cold the milk would be frozen and popping out of the top. The little paper cover would sit jauntily on the top of the ice-milk. It's been quite some time since I had milk from anywhere other than the grocery store. I found it rather sad that a 5th generation dairy would have problems. Of course, it's much sadder that there have been deaths and probably unreported illnesses.

Here's the story:

BOSTON - At Whittier Farms dairy, the fifth-generation owners brag of the quality of their Holstein cows and still deliver milk right to your door, in glass bottles. Customers like the products because they are a hormone-free taste of old New England.
