Raw milk in California - legal, not legal?

Lynndsey Rigberg | Mar 21, 2011 02:05 PM

Hi Chowhounds,

I've purchased raw milk in LA - at Whole Foods, at the Farmer's market. So please tell me - WHY are the vendors of raw milk products at various farmer's markets getting harassed?

Last year, one very popular vendor (a sweet old grandma type) had cops barging in her house like it was a drug bust and hauled her off to jail for 48 hours before she was finally released. Most recently, a few vendors were arrested publicly...and then released 48 hours later as well.


Thanks for anyone who knows - this is really getting under my skin!!!
