State health officials say at least 10 people have fallen ill after consuming products from Organic Pastures in Fresno County between January and April. None were hospitalized.

California State Veterinarian Annette Whiteford issued a quarantine order for the dairy's products Thursday. The state also issued a statewide recall of its raw milk, raw skim milk, raw cream and raw butter. Consumers are urged to dispose of any of the dairy's products they may have.

The dairy's owner, Mark McAfee, says he believes the test results are incorrect. He has requested a hearing with the California Department of Food and Agriculture Friday.

It's the second recall in six months for the company, which was forced to recall milk contaminated with E.coli in December.
