ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Albuquerque City Council approved the sale of raw milk in the city.

The new ordinance adds an article to the city’s food and beverage rules allowing businesses to seek a permit to sell unpasteurized milk and milk products. Until now, sales were allowed everywhere in the state except Albuquerque. The city ordinance adopts the state’s existing guidelines.

Producers are required to follow state standards including inspections and testing.
