Georgia Raw Milk Sold for Pet Food 2007

Three families in Murray County, Georgia, were sickened by Campylobacter bacteria after consuming raw (unpasteurized) milk that had been sold as pet food by a local dairy. Georgia law prohibits the sale of raw milk for human consumption, but did allow for its sale as pet food, leaving it possible for people to buy raw milk for human consumption.
