SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The owner of a Utah County dairy that's being inspected by health officials says he doesn't know if raw milk from his dairy is what made seven people sick.

Lars Woolsey of Woolsey's Dairy in Payson says he does not think the milk is what caused the food-borne illness. Woolsey says he sent off samples to be tested earlier this week and the county health inspectors were at the dairy Wednesday.

There have been 15 confirmed cases of the illness and seven of the cases were traced back to Woolsey's Dairy.

Woolsey expects the test results next week.

All of the cases have tested positive for Campylobacter, a common bacterial infection that can cause diarrhea, cramping, abdominal pain and fever usually lasting about one week.
