Louisiana Senate Upholds Raw Milk Ban

Raw milk remains banned in Louisiana after the state senate voted against a House-approved bill that would have allowed the sale of raw milk from farmers to the public.

On May 7, the Louisiana House of Representatives voted 78-19 to allow farmer-to-consumer sales of raw milk. Sales would have been limited to 500 gallons per month and the milk would have been required to carry the warning, “Consuming milk that has not been pasteurized may increase your risk of foodborne illness. Persons at highest risk include newborns and infants; the elderly; pregnant women; those taking corticosteroids, antibiotics or antacids; and those having chronic illnesses or other conditions that weaken their immunity.”

Unfortunately, this health warning wasn’t enough to convince Louisiana senators that the public has the right to decide what to eat at their own risk, like oysters.

On May 21, the Senate Health and Welfare Committee sided with public health officials and voted 4-1 against the House-approved bill.

  1. I don’t know about a “communist hoax” about global warming, but we, indeed, should have the right to consume unadulterated food. As if the government doesn’t have more important and far reaching problems to solve….

  2. Well we in Lasalle parish will continue to sell raw milk. No gov agency nor governmental body has the right to tell “we the people” what we can eat &not eat.
    There is no documented evidence that raw milk does harm to any one.
    That theory has as much credibility as global warming and we all know that is a communist lie.
    So we are serving notice on all who voted communist on this matter to pack your bags. If we don’t get you out of office by scheduled elections you will be removed by recall elections. Now I am really set to fight. We depended on you godless idiots to do the right thing, stay out of out personal business. But it appears that all you politicians can’t do the right thing on your own somebody has to hold their foot on your head.
    Louisuana state senate has proved they can not do the right thing. They made their decision on lies and propaganda. Again, Louisiana has the best politicians money can buy.. No wonder we won the award as the most corrupt state in America.
    Folks we have work to do and that is to get these communist idiots out of office ASAP. God Bless Louisiana & America.
