FDA warns consumers about raw milk

The FDA and several Midwestern state health agencies have warned consumers against drinking unpasteurized, raw milk following an outbreak of campylobacteriosis.

About 12 confirmed reports of raw milk related illness was reported on March 24 to the Michigan Department of Community Health, the FDA reported in its announcement of the alert.

Reports say that a variety of infectious bacteria, such as Salmonella and E. Coli, which can cause illness or death might be contained in unpasteurized milk.

Vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, fever, headache, and body ache are the adverse events related to drinking raw milk.

Reports say that a majority of people recovers quickly from milk-borne illnesses, but the FDA has cautioned that severe reactions may occur in some victims, particularly in older patients, pregnant women, infants, patients with a weakened immune system and younger children.

Agency also stated that there was a nutritional difference between pasteurized and raw milk, and raw milk does not contain compounds that will kill harmful bacteria.
