Raw milk makes 23 sick

 Health officials say the number of people who have gotten sick after consuming raw milk from a Pennsylvania farm has risen to 23.

 Officials say 19 of the 23 people live in Pennsylvania, the others in Maryland.

  They say the people who got sick drank raw milk from the Family Cow store in Chambersburg, Franklin County.

  Family Cow sells raw milk across Pennsylvania, including the Lehigh Valley.

 The Pennsylvania Department of Health says it's still testing Family Cow's milk for harmful bacteria.

  Officials say to throw out Family Cow raw milk purchased after January 1.
