ABSTRACT Q fever is a zoonosis caused by Coxiella burnetii, a unique bacterium that is widespread but infrequently associated with human illness or outbreaks. We report on evidence of infection with C. burnetii in a small group of regular consumers of raw (unpasteurized) milk from the same dairy in Michigan.
