  1. For the last time : "I have not voted for either a Republican or a Democrat in over 30 years"...how many times do I have to tell you people that? I am just sick to death over what untruths are posted on these "social" media sites and sick to death of all the politicians. If three fourths of what is posted on these sites was ever acted upon by the people we would not have all these career pollys! Thank God I have just a little time left on this earth. Social media is the biggest fraud ever hoisted on the world!!!!!!!

  12. PENNSYLVANIA Summary: Raw milk sales are legal on the farm and in retail stores. Raw milk for retail producers must have a permit and can only sell to stores if they have their own packaging operation with labeling and bottling machines. Stores purchasing raw milk from farmers for resale do not ordinarily need a permit. Producers selling raw milk only on the farm do not need bottling equipment because the state permits customers to bring their own containers. The only raw milk product that licensees can sell legally is cheese. According to the Department of Agriculture, this is because the state has a standard of identity regulation only for raw cheese, not for any other raw dairy products. If a dairy product does not have a standard of identity regulation, the Department will not issue a permit for it. Pennsylvania Statutes TITLE 31 FOOD (P. S. ) CHAPTER 13 MILK AND CREAM MILK MARKETING LAW PERMITS FOR SALE OF MILK OR MANUFACTURED DAIRY PRODUCTS 31 P.S. § 646. Permit; application; reimbursement of Inspection expenses; reciprocal agreements Except as hereinafter provided, no person shall sell milk, milk products or manufactured dairy products within this Commonwealth without first having obtained a permit from the “secretary,” nor otherwise than in accordance with the requirements of this act. Unless the “secretary” shall require a permit, this section shall not apply to a person selling milk or milk products from a store, when such milk or milk products are purchased from a person already in lawful possession of a permit to sell milk or milk products. The “secretary” may, in his discretion, exempt a person selling milk from not more than one cow from such requirements of this act, as he may deem in each instance to be unnecessary for the protection of the public health. Pennsylvania Code of Regulations TITLE 7 AGRICULTURE PART III. BUREAU OF FOOD SAFETY AND LABORATORY SERVICES Subpart B. LIQUID FOODS CHAPTER 61. [Reserved] Subchapter C. MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS 7 Pa. Code § 59.302. Raw milk. (b) General requirements. Raw milk shall meet all the requirements of §§ 59. 101 – 59. 121 (relating to sanitation requirements applicable to production of milk for pasteurization) with the following exceptions: (2) Labeling on all containers and caps except those owned by customers shall be approved by the Department. (7) For prepackaging, a mechanical means of filling and capping bottles shall be used. The cap or closure shall protect the pouring lip to its largest diameter. TITLE 7 AGRICULTURE PART III. BUREAU OF FOOD SAFETY AND LABORATORY SERVICES Subpart B. LIQUID FOODS CHAPTER 61. [Reserved] Subchapter G. MANUFACTURING PLANTS SUPPLEMENTAL REQUIREMENTS FOR PLANTS MANUFACTURING AND PACKAGING CHEESE 7 Pa. Code § 59.773. Operations and operating procedures. (b) Cheese from unpasteurized milk. If the cheese is labeled as “heat treated,” “unpasteurized,” “raw milk,” or “for manufacturing,” the milk may be raw or heated at temperature below pasteurization. If the milk is held more than 2 hours between time of receipt or heat treatment and setting, it shall be cooled to 45°F or lower until time of setting.
