(NaturalNews) In a bombshell revelation of the depth of the food police state that now exists in LA County, California, NaturalNews has learned that the LA County health department has unleashed door-to-door raw milk confiscation teams to threaten and intimidate raw dairy customers into surrendering raw milk products they legally purchased and own.
According to Mark McAfee (see quotes below), both LA County and San Diego county have attempted to acquire customer names and addresses from Organic Pastures (www.OrganicPastures.com) for the sole purpose of sending “food confiscation teams” to customers’ homes to remove the raw milk from customers’ refrigerators. Using both phone calls and home visits, these teams intimidate customers and try to force them to give up their milk.
These revelations have surfaced in a recorded NaturalNews interview with Mark McAfee, the founder of Organic Pastures and a food rights advocate. Here’s what he told us:
“I received a phone call yesterday morning from a wonderful young gal, a 36-year-old mom out of LA County. She’s one of our UPS customers that we deliver overnight raw milk to her house. When the CDFA was in here the other day on our recall, they demanded to have all our delivery addresses for overnight UPS delivery. We screwed up and [inadvertently] gave it to them, they got it from one of our secretaries here. The LA County health department started calling her, six or seven times, demanding that she give up her raw milk from her own home to the health department.
She refused, then they showed up at her house and demanded that she give her raw milk to them. She was getting ready to call 911 for the Sheriff’s department and have them removed from her front doorstep, and she was threatening to use her camera to take a picture of them and post it on Facebook for harassing her over her raw milk… The investigators left after she told them she was not going to give them the raw milk and to get the Hell off her property.
This is what’s going on, it’s like food Nazis, it’s incredible what these people are doing, trying to collect food from people’s houses, that have not made them ill!
Then the San Diego health department called me up and said oh we want a list of all your buyer’s club members, and I said no… and they said we want all their addresses and their names, because we want to go to their homes. I said it ain’t happening, we aren’t going to give it to you.”
LA County has already conducted armed raids on raw milk distribution centers — arearmed raids on raw milk customersnext? Will LA County Health Department investigators start calling on the police to go door to door, arresting raw milk owners as if they were crack dealers?
Remember: The raw milk from Organic Pastures is legally sold, legally purchased, and greatly enjoyed by its customers. There are virtually no complaints about this product. Customers love it. Only the government wants to confiscate it and destroy it.
And even as the county is unleashing food police to confiscate raw milk that authorities say might be dangerous, they cannot find anyone actually harmed by it. Nor do they pay any attention to the fact that upwards of 70 percent of the fresh chicken meat sold at grocery stores across California is routinely contaminated with salmonella and other pathogens….”

Whether it is legal or not is irrelevant. What you choose to put into your body is your God given Inalienable right. Never lose focus of that fact. Never give in to the tyrants.
“If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

Wont defend the borders but will invade your home to remove health providing food
How far will the abuse, and the violations of our civic rights, go before citizens put their foot down? First step: let’s overwhelm the policy makers with signatures demanding that the freedom of local communities to produce, distribute and consume the food of their choice be enforced, upheld and respected.

Laetitia you may see this as a small point – but I see it as a huge one:
We do not have civil rights – if you research the meaning, and use of the word you will find that it refers to rights that government (not God or virtue of your birth) has bestowed upon you. It really describes government permissions, and not rights at all. I do understand that you have been brainwashed with this disinformation and lie your entire life and it is hard to break the habit. This is very similar to people inaccurately saying that we live in a democracy. which in the US we most definitely do not.
Mark, thank that mom for me! I want her to know how proud I am of her-she didn’t cave under their tyrannical pressure, and neither should even one single person! Unfortunately, some have, and thus the Food Police feel they have more power, more strength to demand control over our food supply. Shame on those who give in; we should all know better, but some do not, or are afraid, I understand. But kuddoes to those who don’t!
Dennis: So we will mix in a bit of practical knowledge about milk production locally because that is part of producing food locally and that is the mission of this show and we will be talking about the legal and regulatory environment and some big plans that you (Jan) have for November 23, 2011.
We are wondering if there is any more info on this, to verify it. Finding it odd that no one else has any info!
