In Response to Russell Eaton on "Deceptive Milk Labeling," July 29, 2008

 

The following is offered in response to misinformation included in the article “Deceptive Milk Labelling is Misleading Americans,” written by Russell Eaton:


The Organic Trade Association (OTA, a membership-based business association for organic agriculture and products in North America, recognizes that all milk contains some hormones. As such, it advises its members against labeling their organic products as “hormone-free.” Instead, OTA encourages its members to label their products according to the federally mandated National Organic Standards, which prohibit the use of synthetic hormones, genetically engineered organisms (GMOS), antibiotics, toxic and persistent pesticides, sewage sludge and irradiation.


Organic dairy products in the United States generally are labeled “produced without the use of synthetic growth hormones,” which is an accurate statement.
