Warning About Raw Milk Issued

The Food and Drug Administration and the American Academy of Pediatrics say pregnant women and children should not consume raw milk and raw milk products.

Cleveland Clinic physician Emma Raizman says the agencies advise pregnant women and children to consume pasteurized milk and milk products.


Raizman says nearly two-thousand people got sick between 1998 and 2009 after consuming raw milk and raw milk products.
