Raw milk consultation outcome published – good news with due credit to the FSA | Artisan Food Law Blog

Raw milk consultation outcome published – good news with due credit to the FSA | Artisan Food Law Blog | The Food rEvolution | Scoop.it
The pasteurisation of all milk cannot be justified and raw milk vending machines have a place – say the Food Standards Agency. The Food Standards Agency’s (FSA) consultation undertaken as a part of its review of the controls governing the sale of raw drinking milk and cream closed on 30 April. True to its word, the FSA published the outcome of this consultation last Friday. Steve Wearne, the FSA’s Director of Food Safety, summarises the outcome in a report for consideration by the Board of the FSA later this month. A full response to the comments submitted is expected to be published before 30 July. The responses – all 536 – were overwhelmingly in support of greater access to raw drinking milk with just four respondents calling for the pasteurisation of all milk. What has the FSA made of them all? Due credit to the FSA for what is, on the whole, good news.
Alison D. Gilbert's insight:

Let's hope the US will follow the UK on this.
