Description:This historic 1925 message from the Minnesota Department of Health noted the potential sources of raw milk contamination, and why pasteurization was an important step in the distribution process. The diagram clearly illustrated the hazards inherent in each system component involved in the delivery of fresh milk to consumers.
This image was part of a Minnesota Health Department campaign to promote safe food handling and to prevent food-borne illness.

Many people do not think about food safety until a food-related illness affects them or a family member. While the food supply in the United States in 2005 was deemed as one of the safest in the world, CDC estimates that 76 million people get sick, more than 300,000 are hospitalized, and 5,000 Americans die each year from food-borne illness. Preventing food-borne illness and death remains a major public health challenge.
