Court orders HHS to rule on raw milk.
Meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control in Atlantic has received what its director has described as a "wealth of evidence" linking consumption of this milk with serious diarrheal diseases that can result in death--most notably, campylobacteriosis and a virulent form of salmonellosis. Responding to a suit filed last year by the Washington, D.C.-based Public Citizen Health Research Group, U.S. District Court Judge Gerhard Gesell has ordered the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to stop its foot-dragging. Calling HHS's justification for inaction "lame at best and irresponsible at worst," Gesell gave the agency 60 days to publish a proposed rule settling the milk's regulatory status in both interstate and intrastate sales.
