Jruby-memcached-client returns raw string

I’m trying to implement the jruby-memcached-client. I can write a value
to the memcache store but when read from it the value gets returned as a
raw value. Is there some parameter that I need to set to get the value
returned in the original format? I tried using Rails.cache.read(‘name’,
:raw => false) but I still get a raw value.
