Amish manufacturers of dairy products are targets of the FDA for selling raw milk:
A yearlong sting operation, including aliases, a 5 a.m. surprise inspection and surreptitious purchases from an Amish farm in Pennsylvania, culminated in the federal government announcing this week that it has gone to court to stop Rainbow Acres Farm from selling its contraband to willing customers in the Washington area.
The product in question: unpasteurized milk. …
The FDA’s actions stand in contrast to other areas where the Obama administration has said it will take a hands-off approach to violations of the law, including the use of medical marijuana in states that have approved it, and illegal-immigrant students and youths, whom the administration said recently will not be targets of their enforcement efforts.
So, laws against pot — who cares? Illegal aliens? Send more! But fresh milk, purchased by people fully aware of what they’re doing, that warrants attention. And it’s not even prohibited by, you know, an actual law, passed by Congress — it’s just a regulation issued by bureaucrats.
