(TRENTON) – Pennsylvania agriculture officials on Saturday issued a quarantine of raw milk from Miller’s Biodiversity Farm in Quarryville, Pa., due to potential health concerns.
New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture Douglas Fisher today reminds the state’s residents and consumers that the importation across state lines into New Jersey of raw milk for direct consumption is a violation of federal law (21 CFR 1240.61).
“The New Jersey Department of Agriculture is working with surrounding states to determine the extent to which raw milk from the farm in question has been received by New Jersey residents and consumers at the New Jersey locations listed on the farm’s website,” Secretary Fisher said.
