Kansas City Star: Suggested ban on raw milk cheeses overlooks that properly aged cheese is safe
". . . Let me ask you, do you like to enjoy a nice piece of Roquefort? Or how about dipping a nice crusty loaf into bubbling pot of fondue made with Gruyere and Emmentaler? Or some local specialties like Flory’s Truckle or the cheeses made by Skyview Creamery in Pleasanton, Kan. All made with raw milk."
I heard about that proposed ban. My thought was that someone has waay too much time on his hands.
In the first place, the FDA already has a ban on raw milk cheeses that are not aged at least 60 days. So what's wrong with the rest of it? Nothing. and really, nothing is wrong with raw milk. In fact, it's way healthier for humans than the stuff we pour down our kids in the name of stong bones.
If you don't want to eat raw milk cheeses, then don't. No one's making you. But those of us who do want to, leave us alone!
