Health Tip: Avoid Raw Dairy Products

Pasteurized is the way to go

(HealthDay News) -- Raw milk and cheeses haven't been pasteurized, a process that eliminates harmful germs.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises:

  • Consume only milk and cheese that have been pasteurized. If a label doesn't specify, it's best not to buy that product.
  • Store dairy products in the refrigerator at 40 degrees Fahrenheit or lower.
  • When dairy products expire, throw them out.
  • If you're buying unaged, fresh cheese, make sure it is made with pasteurized milk.
