THE SHAMELESS SEVEN–
ORGANIC OUTLAWS LABELING FACTORY FARM MILK AS "USDA ORGANIC"
In April OCA launched a boycott of two leading organic dairy
brands and distributors, Horizon (a division of Dean Foods)
and Aurora, for mislabeling their products as "USDA Organic,"
even though most of their milk is coming from factory farm feedlots
where the cows have been brought in from conventional farms
and have little or no access to pasture. After three months,
thousands of consumers and a number of co-ops and natural food
stores have joined the boycott. Now it’s time to expand the
boycott to five grocery chains selling bogus organic milk from
"O" Organics brand
Oats’ organic milk
addition OCA is calling for a boycott of Horizon’s sister
soy brands–Silk soymilk and White Wave tofu–which have begun
turning away from U.S. organic farmers and instead importing
cheap organic soybeans from China and Brazil, where labor
rights and environmental standards are routinely violated.
send an email message to the Shameless Seven, telling them to
stop violating organic standards and to source certified organic
foods and ingredients from North American family farmers. And
please forward this email to interested friends and colleagues.
