    Before the invention and acceptance of pasteurization, raw milk was a common source of the bacteria that cause tuberculosis, diphtheria, severe streptococcal infections, typhoid fever, and other foodborne illnesses. These illnesses killed many people each year, especially young children. In the 1900s many mothers recognized this risk and would boil milk (bringing it to a temperature of 212°F) before giving it to their infants and young children.

    Many studies have shown that pasteurization does not significantly change the nutritional value of milk – pasteurized milk is rich in proteins, carbohydrates, and other nutrients. Heat slightly affects a few of the vitamins found in milk-- thiamine, vitamin B12, and vitamin C-- but milk is only a minor source of these vitamins.

    As someone who has a family member who has some expertise in Ag-Food safety, I've been told that raw milk products are disgusting and pose a serious health risk. Sampling fresh milk on a family farm is one thing, but trucking it elsewhere for processing is quite another. About the only raw milk product I will eat is cheese that has been properly (key word) aged for a minimum of 60 days--not coincidentally an FDA regulated requirement. 60 days is thought to be enough time to inactivate the harmful pathogens. The FDA has been considering revisiting this regulation to determine whether 60 days is enough, even.

    as a child growing up my freinds grandma would dip fresh whole milk from the milking parlor tank and make fresh butter for the meals we ate when visiting the farm! We never got sick from the unpasteurized milk and nobody had allergies or other health issues kids have today! More Nanny state!

    Simple solution and it could have "cured" the problem within a day of initial incident. With everyone present, take several samples from the accused cheese and retest it. With someone from both sides watching the process of evidence collection with a sample for both parties to test (just like with blood collection for OWI cases). If it comes up positive. . . . .it is "squeezed" out and disposed of. . . . .simple. If it would have been my cheese and my profits, I think I would have spent the money to bring a testing company in and prove the state wong. . . if in fact it was wrong.
