A British Columbia resident who operates a “cowshare” that produces and distributes raw milk to members has filed a lawsuit against the provincial government challenging a regulation that prohibits the sale of milk that has not been pasteurized. Jongerden d/b/a Home on the Range v. The Queen, No. S-111196 (Sup. Ct., British Columbia, filed February 23, 2011). According to the complaint, the plaintiff has been cited for packaging and distributing raw milk for human consumption and was further cited for contempt when she continued to sell the milk after labeling it as “not for human consumption.” The plaintiff contends that raw milk has beneficial health effects and that the ultra vires regulation has prevented her from obtaining and consuming raw milk from a lawful source.
