Bill Would Allow Sale of Potentially Harmful Raw Milk
This week Jeremy Bruecker, field representative for Dairy Farmers of America’s Central Area, spoke before a hearing of the Wisconsin Senate Committee on Financial Institutions and Rural Issues against S.B. 236, which would allow the sale of unpasteurized (raw) milk products to consumers in Wisconsin.
"Raw milk is a confusing term to customers, and more important, a dangerous term,” Bruecker said. “Raw milk is unpasteurized milk that could include many harmful and dangerous germs and pathogens. It can contain bacteria, viruses and parasites.”
