More States Attempt to Limit rbST Labeling

States continue to introduce proposals that would limit the ability for companies to provide labeling informing consumers that products are from cows not treated with rbST. IDFA believes that dairy processors have every right to make claims that are truthful and not misleading on their product labels. At this time IDFA is tracking an emergency regulation that was put in place in Ohio, a proposed regulation in Utah, a bill in the Kansas Senate and a bill in the Vermont House. Earlier actions in Pennsylvania and Indiana were stopped as a result of consumer and industry objections. While working to coordinate efforts on a state-by-state basis, IDFA also is looking at options for action at the federal level. If you hear of any activities in your state, please contact Ruth Saunders, IDFA senior director of legislative affairs and policy analysis, at rsaunders@idfa.org or 202-220-3553.
