The U.S. Food and Drug Administration sought and received a federal injunction against a Pennsylvania farmer to prevent the farmer from selling unpasteurized milk outside of Pennsylvania.
The USDA states that the raw milk can be dangerous.
Can someone explain to me why it's okay for the farmer to sell unpasteurized milk inside Pennsylvania but not outside the state?
The only thing I can think of is that the federal government oversees interstate commerce, so the federal government can't prevent the farmer from selling within his own state. But I would think if the USDA says it is unsafe that the state of Pennsylvania would also say the milk is unsafe.
