NEWS DIGEST - FDA Obstructing Access to Raw Camel Milk

FDA Obstructing Access to Raw Camel Milk + Baked Goods Seized

Also, the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development is at it again--they've seized muffins and cookies during a raid at a herd share operation, marking the first seizure ever of baked goods from FTCLDF members!

Please see below for more details on these topics!
