Raw Milk

Story at-a-glance -

  • There were 21 reported illnesses linked to raw milk in Minnesota from 2001 to 2010, but a new CDC study claims more than 20,500 Minnesotans were actually sickened
  • If a person was sickened by campylobacter, E. coli O157:H7 or salmonella during the study period, and had drank raw milk in the week before, the illness was blamed on raw milk (even though many foods could have caused the illness)
  • Even using the above criteria, this only raised the illness to 530, which were then multiplied based on an assumption that the illnesses were underreported
  • The CDC continues to put out incredibly misleading data regarding raw milk, misleading the public that all raw milk is dangerous, when it fact it’s typically safer than pasteurized milk when it comes from a high-quality source
