Raw Milk and Food Safety
“Back to nature” – that’s what many Americans are trying to do with the foods that we buy and eat. We are shopping at farmer’s markets, purchasing organic food, participating in food cooperatives (or co-ops), and even growing our own food. In addition, many people are eating food with minimal processing.
However, raw milk and products made from it (including soft cheese, ice cream, and yogurt) can pose severe health risks, including death. That’s because raw milk has not undergone a process called pasteurization that kills disease-causing germs, such as Campylobacter, E. coli, Listeria, and Salmonella.
