      The January, 2014 issue of Pediatrics reports:
      "Sales of raw or unpasteurized milk and milk products
      are still legal in at least 30 states in the United 
      States. Raw milk and milk products from cows, goats,
      and sheep continue to be a source of bacterial
      infections attributable to a number of virulent
      pathogens, including Listeria monocytogenes,
      Campylobacter jejuni, Salmonella species, Brucella
      species, and Escherichia coli O157." 
      That's the good news. The bad news is that these
      same pathogens survive in pasteurized milk sold
      in supermarkets and stored in America's refrigerators.
      "Butter readily supports growth of salmonella at room 
      temperature, but refrigeration or freezing for brief 
      periods does not eliminate it. Salmonella can remain 
      viable in butter for up to 9 months."

      "A drop of sour milk may contain more than 50 million bacteria." 
       - Modern Dairy Products, Third Edition Lincoln Lampert 
      "Curing alone may not be a sufficient pathogen control 
      step to eliminate Salmonella, Listeria, and E. coli O157:H7 
      from cheese.

      "Bulk tank milk from 131 dairy herds in eastern South 
      Dakota and western Minnesota were examined for coliforms 
      and non-coliform bacteria. Coliforms were detected in 
      62.3% of bulk tank milk samples...non-coliform bacteria 
      were observed in 76.3% of bulk tank milk." 
       - Journal of Dairy Science, 1999 Dec, 82:12 
      "The administration of sub-therapeutic doses of antibiotics 
      to livestock introduces selective pressures that may lead 
      to the emergence and dissemination of resistant bacteria. 
      The present findings clearly demonstrate that antibiotic- 
      resistant bacteria in beef and milk pose a serious problem."
