This is something of an inconvenience but a welcome relief.
My mother would have had a sister if it were not for RAW, UNPASTEURIZED MILK. which was contaminated and killed the infant who was only 6 months old. People don't understand the necessity of this.

It is ok to take chances with your own life but once you sell unpasteurized dairy products to another, you have no right to ask a stranger to take that chance.


The blame should go to the source of the contamination, not the medium of transport (milk) or mode of infection (ingestion).

The information I saw was this:

Charges are Conspiracy to commit a crime. #182A of the CA Penal Code, and the sale of a miss labeled package of cheese.

The sale of one mislabeled package of cheese? And did they actually sell to nonmembers? GIven they were already under scrutiny once, I don't think they'd be so lax about selling outside a contract.

Something tells me there must be more to the story, they were interested in the amount of cash in his store... It's nOt hard to get business records to track their annual and even semi annual profits. It's also not hard to track stock and inventory cost. If there was a surplus of cash in the store, Exceeding that of the stores potential than we are looking at a possible front for an illegal operation (not involving raw dairy). I dont want to go into the details of what this illegal operation could be, mostly because I don't agree with the fact that it's illegal.... But, think about the location... Venice Beach, CA.

They got a grand total of $4,536.00.

How suspicious it that for a store?

They seized cash, records and computers to cripple the operation, intimidate customers and suppliers, and as punishment before trial, not as evidence.

From what I have read, people say this a choice that they should be allowed to make on their own. It is likely that one can become ill from drinking unpasturized milk but it is unlikely if it is handled properly. In high school I had a friend whos family owned a dairy and we drank milk straight from the bulk tank used to store milk directly after milking the cows and we never got ill.



Ha, I have done the same yet here I am! Hell, I have even squirted it directly from the teet to my mouth (as a dare lol). I was more concerned with being kicked in the head than getting sick. Today, I rarely drink milk because it taste rotten to me, at least the commercial milk does.

My point is that we're talking Global Monopoly here - individual politicians, even nations have no power. It's the multi-national corporations who hold the power and call the shots. If you want to know your rights as an individual human person, you need to check out the trade agreements. [You don't have any.]

As I said earlier,

(NAFTA) Critics at the time pointed out that human needs and concerns like civil rights weren't accommodated - but they were shut down.

Leftists in South America screwed up THE PLAN for the Northern Hemisphere part - especially that Chavez guy and the thirsty peasants in Cochabamba. So the Big Boyz moved on Iraq and focused on the Middle East. Now all those peasants are revolting too!!!

It's Global Monopoly and damn the stupid humans.

...The only hope is if the Libertarians and Lefties work together against Global Corporate rule.

You are not even reading are you?


There's an element of wishful thinking to many food mythologies, but—unlike the haloed status of raw milk—most don't lead directly to risky behavior or public health concerns or physicians complaining that increased consumption of "nature's perfect food" has led to a recent doubling in the number of milk-borne disease outbreaks.

Blaming an unwise end user is more justified than a potentially harmful product. People should rely upon their common sense a little more often, rather than hoping some gov't reg or authority will protect them from their own foolishness.

How do you explain 36 million pounds of tainted turkey, all bearing the Cargill QC approval code and the USDA "seal of approval?" Explain to the dead, dying and sick how gov't intrusion and safety regs have helped them, instead of proper care, handling and preparation of food.

deny ignorance.

What they were raided for and charged with has nothing to do with their product.
They were raided for selling to "unsuspecting" non-members.


No they were not.
They were raided for selling from a truck to a fully-informed law enforcement officer/investigator who knew exactly what he was buying, and what the risks were in consuming the products.

This was a regulatory offense that should be punishable by a fine or injuction, not arrest and imprisonment.

It has everything to do with their product.

MONSANTO and the republicans whose lips are attached to their buttocks a
re the ones pushing to arrest anyone that does not use their products.

MONSANTO is anti-nature.
MONSANTO is behind this push to get rid of anything ORGANIC too.


You are so blinded by your bias as to completely miss the fact that Rep. Rosa DeLauro and her spouse have been the biggest pro-Monsanto shills in Congress for years. They've pushed bills to make small farmers and home gardners virtual pariahs.

Independents, Libertarians, Republicans and Tea Party advocates have generally opposed excessive government intrusin into provate affairs, and small-scale food production.

The Progressive, Liberal Democrats have tried time and again to regulate small farmers, small gardens and farmers' markets out of existence and prevent competition with conglomerate producers like Dow and Monsanto.

Don't believe me? Google: "Monsanto DeLauro" or "DeLauro farmers" and see what a perversion the "progressives" have made of government control of food.

It would not surprise me in the least if at some point in the near future breast feeding were to become illegal. they already put it in your head that it is "dirty," as evidenced by the fact that breast feeding mothers have bee asked to leave public places for feeding their babies - despite the fact that the breast is usually fully covered and no one can really see anything. YET, it is perfectly accepted, and not considered offensive at all for our televisions, magazine and billboards to be covered in half naked chicks with WAY more showing than a breast feeding mother, in order to sell you cars or any number of products that have nothing to do with naked women in the first place. I'm waiting for the day that a breast feeding mother is asked to leave a Hooters or Bone Daddy's restaurant or something - wouldn't that just be par for the course?

In this country anything that is "natural" is quickly becoming seen as morally wrong on some level and "dirty." Even though we are naturally born creatures of this planet, and the whole point of an ecosystem is that it sustains itself - we were born of this earth, to live off of this earth - if that were not in our genetic design, then we would not exist in the first place. we ARE organic, not machines that "run" on synthetic fuel, yet we are taught to go completely against our nature and survive solely on manufactured products. And in doing so, we are killing ourselves AND the planet that gave us life in the first place. Wonder how much longer it will be before the earth gets angry and decides to shake the fleas off.

Hopefully by now people have mentioned that the premise of this thread is not true?

That company has been operating without any licenses, permits or inspections since 2007. They have had many warnings and will not stop.

The real question is why would anyone buy anything from them in the first place. If they don't care about operating legally, I doubt they care about cleanliness. Must be Inbred


I don't get this paranoid, delusional madness about Pasteurizing Milk? A person would have to be nuts to buy from that place to begin with.

This is not a conspiracy, just some nuts with some Cow's who don't know what they are doing.

raw milk is NOT a problem and does NOT need to be heated before consumption...
but that only counts for HEALTHY cows...the ones without the 3 shots of antibiotics a day and that are fed their own kind which also had all the growth hormones & antibiotics...

Wow, really? Rawesome probably has some of the cleanest most nourishing food in the entire country. They are taking pride in and offering products based upon an understanding of what quality food should be and their customers understand this. Unfortunately to be a fully operational dairy to sell retail takes a whole lot of money that these small farmers don't have. It is not illegal to own a cow and drink it's milk. Essentially this is what it's members do.

The delusional madness is the backwards thinking that pasteurized milk is a nutritious product let alone a healthy one. Pasteurized milk is a dead product from cows raised in unhealthy environments, has no nutritional value and is proven to cause a host of health problems. Naturally raised raw milk is a completely different product.

I really hope you're joking, because those were some of the most ignorant statements I've read so far.

This is a local story to me, it's just a couple miles from where I live. Here is the local papers article.
www.vcstar.com...

She's a convicted home loan fraud felon. All the local farmers markets won't let her sell milk because she lacks any documentation for it. Also, it's alleged that the milk she's selling may even be "counterfeit organic" basically regular milk relabeled, marked up, and sold to the unsuspecting.

I know a global Monsanto conspiracy is a lot more fun, but I'm sorry to say that's not really the case.
There are 25+ places where you can get legal, legit, and safe unpasteurized dairy products in CA.

People don't need permission to operate a business.

That's complete a$$-tarded, butt-fukkery.

Since when did freedom = begging for permission to do something you already have the right to do?
