Forest Grove Dairy

The FDA sent Forest Grove Dairy a warning letter on February 8, 2007. The letter read, in part:[1]

"A joint investigation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the Indiana Board of Animal Health, and the Michigan Department of Agriculture, has documented violations of the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act) and a Federal regulation promulgated under the PHS Act.
"Our investigation determined that your firm distributes unpasteurized raw milk and cream in interstate commerce, in finished form for human consumption. Such distribution is a violation of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C. § 271(a), and the regulation codified in Title 21, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), section 1240.61(a) The regulation prohibits the delivery into interstate commerce of milk and milk products in final package form for direct human consumption unless they have been pasteurized. The milk and cream you produce in Indiana and distribute to Cooperatives in Michigan and Illinois for further distribution to their Co-op members is in final package form for direct human consumption. For your information, we have enclosed a copy of the regulation as it was published in the Federal Register, 52 FR 29,509 (Aug 10, 1987)."
