Organic Labeling In Jeopardy

The USDA's National Organic Program (NOP) has published a new scope document that compromises efforts to establish meaningful organic standards for personal care products, dietary supplements, fertilizers, soil amendments, manure and related materials, fish and seafood, and pet foods. The new NOP Scope will make it illegal for makers of the aforementioned products to display the USDA Organic Seal in the future or make any other claims suggesting these products are made under the USDA NOP standards. The OCA is pressuring the USDA to retract its new position, which hurts organic farmers and consumers by allowing companies to make organic claims without being certified.
