  • Raw milk in store states "for pet consumption only?"

    I would like to buy raw goats milk and I've found a place that carries it, however, on the labeling it states for pet consumption only. Are they required to say this just because it isn't pasteurized and would any of you buy and drink it? It's just raw goat milk in a glass jar. I was thinking it was just a way to bypass regulations but I wasn't sure so I thought I'd better ask! =)

    Yes, we are required to put that on the label. What you do with it after you get it home is your business.

    Edited to add:
    Laws vary from state to state. I'm in Missouri, and here I can legally sell raw milk from my farm. In Texas, raw milk is NOT legal to sell raw milk from the farm UNLESS you have a Grade A license, which is INCREDIBLY expensive to acquire.

    I only milk three does for home use, and I make cheese for family and friends. I give it away.

        No, they aren't. It's state regulation and gives the state, the Milk Board, and the USDA the opportunity to come to your house with officers in camo and guns drawn and confiscate your computers and threaten you. This *IS* happening.

        Darn, please don't push this button. If you aren't in the milk/goat/small farm arena, you really may not be aware of the struggles that are going on.

        Food rights are a BIG problem and growing.

          It's just a way to get past the big government police-state left-wing statists who want to dictate what you can put into your body.

            Have you ever been Teacher's Pet? Had a pet name? Have a pet peeve?
            If you answered yes to any of these questions, we're good. Safe for PET consumption

              That is our law in North Carolina as well (Not for human consumption). A couple of years ago some over zealous folks tried to change the rules so that the pet milk had to be dyed with a black ink so that people wouldn't want to drink it. Thankfully a huge uproar occurred and it was voted down.

                      And I am very fortunate that there is such a farm (cow dairy) right in the middle of the NE DFW suburbs (Plano), and there is another one (cow) just west of Denton (north central above D & FW). Oddly, goat dairy farms are far more prevalent in the surrounding area.

                        Yup. I get my raw goat milk from a place about 20 miles from my home here in Crowley (near Fort Worth). You have to know your farmer though.. I was at a differnet place a few weeks ago and in that back room from where themilk is kept there were loads of old bread and baked goods. Presumably to feed to the cows... not going back there.
