South Dakota raw milk regulations

This excerpt is from a recent post on the Pure Pierre Politics blog:

WARNING: This product has not been pasteurized and may contain harmful bacteria. Pregnant women, infants, children, the elderly and persons with lowered resistance to disease have the highest risk of harm from use of this product.

That’s the message which bottles of raw milk will need to carry as part of their labeling, under new rules proposed for marketing raw milk for human consumption in South Dakota.  The state Department of Agriculture plans a public hearing on the rules Nov. 17 at 9:30 a.m. in room 412 of the state Capitol. Under one of the rules, the department wants to know who’s buying the milk:

“Milk plants that provide or offer bottled raw milk for human consumption shall maintain a current list of persons to whom they have provided raw milk for human consumption. The list must be continually updated and include the data for at least 60 days. This customer list shall include customer names, addresses, phone numbers, and quantities of bottled raw milk for human consumption. This list shall be provided to the department upon the department’s request.”

    I don’t care what the label says. If I trust what’s in it, and I want it, I’m buying it. And I’ll buy it from those who want nothing more than my money.
