Raw Milk in the News

November 10, 2011

  • Michael Schmidt Meets with Ontario Premier and Ends Hunger Strike (Toronto Sun, 11/4)
  • Wisconsin Raw Milk Bill Stalled in Committee (The Country Today, 11/2)
  • Positive Listeria Test in Cheddar Leads to Misinformation About Listeria: A Washington state creamery announced a voluntary recall of its raw milk cheddar yesterday after a test by the Washington State Department of Agriculture returned positive for listeria. There have been no reports of illness. The Oregonian article (11/9) about the recall called it “the same bacteria that’s caused one of the deadliest outbreaks in U.S. history,” referring to the recent listeria outbreak in cantaloupe that has killed 29 people. A similarly deadly listeria outbreak occurred in 1985, when 29 people were killed after eating fresh cheese made from pasteurized milk. Whether made from pasteurized or unpasteurized milk, hard, aged cheeses are less likely to be contaminated with listeria because of their relatively low moisture content and high acidity.
