Raw milk – featured today in the Washington Post

Thomas Bartlett of the Washington Post recently ordered some raw, unpasteurized milk from a Tennessee dairy that offers raw milk as pet food.

Bartlett lives in Maryland, where raw milk is not offered in stores. Selling it is actually illegal there.

Not only is it illegal, but it is also a violation of federal law to transport raw milk across state lines with the intent to sell it for human consumption. Hence, the dairy in Tennessee’s decision to sell their raw product as “pet food”.

The dairy’s Web site warns that "due to significant legal and liability issues, we cannot and will not answer questions regarding human consumption of these or any other raw milk products — please don’t ask."
