Tuberculosis remains a major global problem. The control of bovine tuberculosis was relatively simple, relying on the eradication of infected animals, a successful screening program, and the institution of pasteurization of milk. Raw milk products still carry risk, and though goat’s milk does not carry tuberculosis, it could infect with undulant fever. So pasteurization is a major public health requirement; insist on it for any dairy products you may use!
