Washington Times Op-Ed: Congress Steps in to Call Off the War on Unpasteurized Milk

An editorial published in The Washington Times paints a vivid picture of the legal disputes between raw milk sellers and public health officials, describing it as a “war on unpasteurized milk” in which several members of Congress have finally and rightfully decided to intervene.

The author portrays authorities as “food police” and describes undercover agents trying to entrap Amish farmers and SWAT teams raiding health food markets in attempts to crack down on the sales of raw milk. The author praises Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Representative Chellie Pingree (D-ME) for introducing two food freedom bills that would end federal persecution of those selling and buying raw milk and raw milk products.

“It’s a sure sign that the government is too big and has too much to do that it expends so much effort to spill raw milk,” writes the author. “The public is perfectly capable of deciding whether to drink milk raw or cooked. The SWAT teams should look for evildoers elsewhere.”
