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

The Weston Value Basis has responded with this essential Motion Alert.

On June 6, the FDA wrote to all state public well being and agriculture companies 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 could be transmitted to people by means of consumption of uncooked milk and merchandise made out 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 determine the presence of HPAI H5N1 virus in dairy herds that may be 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 danger to shoppers.”

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

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

  1. Inspector Data kind to acquire the names and make contact with info of these visiting their farm (beneath).
  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, kind of take a look at that shall be used and make contact with info of the lab that shall be doing the testing (beneath).

Clearly, no inspector will have the ability to present the knowledge requested on the shape, info 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 hen farmers.

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

Sincerely yours,

Sally Fallon Morell, President

The Weston A. Value Basis
