Rawesome Foods founder arrested, subjected to “Week of Hell” in L.A. jail


WASHINGTON, March 20, 2012—James Stewart, founder of Rawesome Foods, an organic food buying club, was arrested and imprisoned by Ventura County marshals while attending a preliminary hearing in a L.A. Court.

Stewart is fighting multiple felonies filed against him for the production and distribution of farm fresh raw milk, or milk that is sold unpasteurized. Raw milk is said to retain vital nutrients and health benefits that are destroyed, according to proponents, in the pasteurization process.

Raw milk is legal in California.
