Consumer Outrage Forces PA
Retreat On 'rGBH-Free' Labels


In Organic Bytes issue #121, the OCA reported that the Pennsylvania Agriculture Department (PDA) was moving to ban labeling of dairy products as rBGH-free. Under pressure from Monsanto, the manufacturer of the genetically engineered Bovine Growth Hormone, the PDA listed 16 companies that would be required to remove rBGH-free labels by December 31, 2007. Market analysts surmised that once Pennsylvania successfully banned such labeling, other states would likely follow.
Thanks to a massive outcry from the public, Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell has intervened on this issue and is delaying probably permanently the implementation of the rule in order to thoroughly review the impact and legality of banning rBGH-free labels. This is great news for dairy farmers and consumers. The OCA applauds all who took action on this issue.
According to PDA spokesman Chris Ryder, "There was some level of surprise. We weren't anticipating quite this response."
