Eric Reuter operates Chert Hollow Farm in Boone County. They sell, among other things, raw milk and tells KSSZ radio those products are getting a raw deal in the media.
"I don't like being tarred when you see health departments going on and on about how raw milk is inherently dangerous. It's not inherently dangerous, it's potentially dangerous, just like raw meat and raw eggs are dangerous."
Reuter tells his customers to heat up the milk to kill any bacteria the same way you heat up eggs to keep them safe.
"There is a tendency to rush to judgement when you see the potential for a raw product, and that rush to judgement can cloud what ought to be a very impartial investigation into all possible sources."
Chert Hollow Farm's products are not suspected in any of the cases. Investigators are still looking for the actual cause or causes of the e-coli outbreak.
