FDA Plans Uncooked Milk Shutdown. Please Share This With Your Farmer ASAP

The Weston Worth Basis has responded with this essential Action Alert.

On June 6, the FDA wrote to all state public health and agriculture agencies advising them on the necessity to “collectively work to deal with new developments associated to the presence of Excessive Pathogenic Avian Influenza A H5N1 (HPAI H5N1) in dairy cattle.”

Though admitting that  “. . . we have no idea presently if the HPAI H5N1 virus might be transmitted to people by consumption of uncooked milk and merchandise constituted of uncooked milk from contaminated cows,” the company recommends that well being and agriculture departments “Distribute messaging to the general public in regards to the well being dangers of consuming uncooked milk and uncooked milk merchandise” and “[i]mplement a surveillance testing program in your state to establish the presence of HPAI H5N1 virus in dairy herds that is perhaps engaged in producing uncooked milk for intrastate saleThe FDA and USDA will present “technical help” in sampling and testing.

Their motive is clearly acknowledged: “For states that let the sale of uncooked milk inside their state, use regulatory authorities or implement different measures, as applicable, to cease the sale of uncooked milk which will current a threat to shoppers.”

We will assume from this memo that uncooked milk farmers will likely be receiving visits from officers wanting to check their milk for a non-existent virus utilizing a bogus testing methodology, simply as they’ve finished for flocks of chickens.

Luckily, some rooster farmers have prevented this testing and prevented the slaughter of their animals by insisting that inspectors fill out two questionnaires.

  1. Inspector Data type to acquire the names and get in touch with data of these visiting their farm (under).
  2. Questionnaire for Inspector, which asks for proof of profitable isolation of the chicken flu virus, proof of contagious nature of the chicken flu virus, sort of check that will likely be used and get in touch with data of the lab that will likely be doing the testing (under).

Clearly, no inspector will have the ability to present the knowledge requested on the shape, data that’s the farmer’s proper to have.  The hope is that they are going to go away and by no means come again–as they’ve with astute rooster farmers.

ACTION TO TAKE: Please share these varieties along with your uncooked milk producer.  We hope that these measures will stop the FDA’s deliberate shutdown of uncooked milk farmers.

Sincerely yours,

Sally Fallon Morell, President
