Ohio Committee Takes No Action, Allowing Product Labeling Rule to Stand
By deciding to take no action on Ohio's revised rule on dairy product labeling, the state legislature's Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review essentially approved the new rule during a public hearing last week in Columbus, Ohio. The new rule is scheduled to become effective May 11, and processors will have 120 days from that date to change their labels to comply. "This action by the JCARR Committee is very disappointing," said IDFA Senior Vice President Jerry Slominski, who attended the hearing and testified against the rule. IDFA is considering additional options for fighting the rule and will keep members informed. To view the rule, click here.
