Farmer forbidden from selling raw milk outside Pa.
Judge blocks Pa. farmer from selling raw milk, considered unsafe, to out-of-state consumers
By The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) ' 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 (AL'-guy-ur) 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.
