I was recently interviewed by Food Safety News on the subject of FDA regulation of raw milk and state efforts that could undermine the agency’s prohibition scheme.

You can read full the article HERE.

Food Safety News reporter Dan Flynn said the Tenth Amendment Center’s work has elevated the battle to legalize raw milk to the national stage.

Even if it is waiting for raw milk bills to bubble up from the states, the entry of the Tenth Amendment Center could have a dramatic influence on the outcome these state contest. The organization, which fights federal overreach in numerous areas, brings a pretty sophisticated game to issues.

Usually state legislative battles over raw milk are fought only by local advocates and raw milk specific groups like the Weston A. Price Foundation. What follows is testimony about how long some has been drinking raw milk and how they’ve never personally gotten sick.

The Tenth Amendment Center is making a different arguments.

“Constitutionally, food safety falls within the powers reserved to the states and the people,” says a position paper written by Maharrey. “The feds have no authority to enforce food safety laws within the border of a state. Nevertheless, federal agencies still want more control over America’s food supply, and they go great lengths to get it.”
