Pathogenic Bacterial Growth
Milk is normally pasteurized or thermally processed in some form to reduce possible pathogens. Raw, unpasteurized milk can carry dangerous bacteria, which are responsible for causing numerous food borne illnesses. Even healthy animals may carry germs that can contaminate milk. Milk may be contaminated with bacteria during the milk collection process. Small numbers of bacteria might multiply and grow in the milk before someone drinks it if it is raw. Dairying methods have improved over the years but are still no substitute for pasteurization in assuring that milk is safe to drink. Raw milk supplied by “certified,” “organic,” or “local” dairies have no guarantee of being safe.
Milk Pathogen Reduction
The origin of milk pathogens is primarily a result of poor sanitation, animal stress, and animal sickness. Camels need to be clean and healthy. It is recommended the camel milk is being tested for pathogens on a regular basis and records of testing should be available to the consumer upon request.
Adherence to good hygienic practices during milking can reduce, but not eliminate, the risk of milk contamination. The dairy farm environment is a reservoir for illness-causing germs. No matter what precautions farmers take, and even if their raw milk tests come back negative, we cannot guarantee that their milk, or the products made from their milk, is free of harmful germs.
Germs such as Escherichia coli O157, Campylobacter, and Salmonella can contaminate milk during the process of milking dairy animals, including cows, camels and goats. Animals that carry these germs are usually healthy.
GOVERNMENT WARNING: RAW (UNPASTEURIZED) MILK AND RAW MILK DAIRY PRODUCTS MAY CONTAIN DISEASE-CAUSING MICROORGANISMS. PERSONS AT HIGHEST RISK OF DISEASE FROM THESE ORGANISMS INCLUDE NEWBORNS AND INFANTS; THE ELDERLY; PREGNANT WOMEN; THOSE TAKING CORTICOSTEROIDS, ANTIBIOTICS OR ANTACIDS; AND THOSE HAVING CHRONIC ILLNESS OR OTHER CONDITIONS THAT WEAKEN THEIR IMMUNITY.
