Farmer Can't Sell Raw Milk Outside Pa.: Judge

A judge forbids a farmer from selling unpasteurized milk outside the state

A central Pennsylvania farmer has been prohibited from selling to out-of-state customers unpasteurized milk, which the government says can be unsafe.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced Wednesday it obtained a permanent injunction against Daniel Allgyer and his Rainbow Acres Farm in Kinzers.
The agency says raw milk can contain harmful bacteria. The milk can be legally sold within Pennsylvania but not elsewhere. A federal judge granted an injunction Feb. 2.
Allgyer argued he was leasing his cows through a private organization to consumers in Washington, D.C. He can still sell raw milk in Pennsylvania. He hasn't returned a message seeking comment.
Another dairy, Family Cow, in Chambersburg, resumed bottling raw milk earlier this month following an 11-day shutdown after dozens of illnesses were reported in four states.
