FDA cracking down on Amish farmer selling raw milk
The FDA is not pleased with this Amish farmer who is selling his raw milk to customers who then take it to their homes across state lines, which is against regulations. Tension is building, and the Raw Milk Freedom Riders have some strong words:
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) apparent war on Amish raw dairy farmers increased on December 6 when they filed a “motion for summary judgment,” with Pennsylvania judge Lawrence Stengler asking for a permanent injunction against dairy farmer Dan Allgyer to forbid him from selling fresh milk out of state. FDA regulation 21 CFR §1240.61
criminalizes any selling of milk intended to cross state lines.
After a two year expensive, exhaustive undercover operation, including multiple armed raids on Allgyer’s farm, FDA agents and a team of ten federal lawyers amassed over two hundred and seventy-six pages of evidence allegedly proving what Allgyer openly admits, that he is selling fresh (raw, unpasteurized) milk to customers who knowingly carry the milk across state lines.
