OGDEN, UT (KSL/CNN) – At least 45 people have gotten sick after drinking raw milk from a dairy farm in Ogden, UT.

People ages 2 to 74 came down with an infection with symptoms including diarrhea, abdominal pain, vomiting and fever.

According to the Utah Department of Health, an employee had not been thoroughly cleaning the udders of the cows.

The improper cleaning allowed contaminants, including manure, to get into the milk.

Food inspectors suspended the dairy's license to sell raw milk until the equipment is cleaned and the milk is free of contamination.
