USDA Plans to Withdraw Humane Standards for Animal Welfare in the Organic Industry
We know that when you choose to buy organic products, you have clear expectations about what that means. Unfortunately, hoping we are all too busy to notice, the Administration has rolled back organic standards regarding animal welfare.

This USDA action goes against the overwhelming support of organic farmers, businesses, and consumers to advance animal welfare standards in organic. The comment deadline is January 17, 2018.
