FDA warns against Raw Camel's Milk

A Saudi businessman that runs a California based raw milk network has been making illegal claims that raw camel milk has therapeutic benefits for autism, tuberculosis, chronic disease, allergies, and diabetes.  This claim is supported by Jodie Dashore

The FDA sent a warning letter to the businessman. This letter outlines the violations that he committed and the letter has ordered him to stop. This letter was dated in 2016.

"The therapeutic claims on your website and Facebook page establish that these products are drugs because they are intended for use in the cure, mitigation, treatment or prevention of disease. As explained further below, introducing or delivering these products for introduction into interstate commerce for such as violates the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act."

"Various products, including raw camel milk MMS, and essential oils. These products have been marketed as a treatment for autism or autism-related symptoms, but have not been proven safe and effective for these advertised uses."

Risks:

Raw milk from cows, sheep, goats or any other animal that has not been pasteurized to kill harmful bacteria is dangerous. Raw milk can carry dangerous bacteria such as :
  • salmonella
  • E. Coli
  • Listeria
  • Campylobacter
  • Others that cause foodborne illnesses, called food poisoning
These bacteria can seriously injure the health of anyone who drinks raw milk or eats products made from raw milk. This can be especially dangerous to people with compromised immune systems, children, older adults, and pregnant women. According to the CDC, foodborne illness especially affects children and teenagers.
