I found some Jana Valley butter at a local store and bought it because the ingredients listed just "cream" as the ingredient unlike the rest of the other butters on the shelf that listed "pasteurized cream" as the ingredient. Jana Valley butter is imported from the Czech Republic and I visited the Jana Valley Foods website and it stated that their butter is made from unpasteurized cream. I was wondering if the butter that is exported to the USA is the same butter sold in Europe. I thought the USDA had a law prohibiting the sale of unpasteurized dairy products, and this is why I am asking. If this butter is really made from unpasteurized cream then I plan to go and buy more and stock up.

Not sure about USDA but each state has its own laws. California is the only place I know that allows sale of unpasteurized butter.
