A dairy in central Pennsylvania connected to 43 illnesses in four states has resumed bottling raw milk.

State officials cleared The Family Cow dairy in Chambersburg to begin bottling again Tuesday.

The dairy had been shut down since illnesses were first reported late last month.

Thirty-six of those reported ill were from Pennsylvania.

The dairy owner says he's installing lab equipment to test for E-coli every time the dairy bottles raw milk.

The milk was sold all over Pennsylvania, including the Lehigh Valley.
