Let the Games Begin
Even though since 1999 there has not been a single outbreak in which it was verified that the illness was caused by an Illinois raw milk producer, the Illinois Department of Public Health has decided the rules for Raw Milk Sales in Illinois must be revised. A Raw Milk Sales Subcommittee of the Department of Food, Drugs and Dairy has been formed.
Fortunately, I was asked by the department director to serve on this subcommittee. Unfortunately the invitation came AFTER they had already met twice, and AFTER the revised rules were in their second draft form.
This, my raw milk friends, is going to get interesting.
