NOAAH Opposes rBGH-Free Milk Marketing

While NOAAH's primary focus in on the quality of housing, in December 2006 it curiously issued a public statement calling on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to ban dairy companies from marketing milk as free of from Monsanto's recombinant bovine growth hormone. NOAAH claims that the milk produced without using rGBH is "identical" to that using the drug and that marketing milk as free of the hormone was a "deceptive practice" that "is generating unnecessary confusion and anxiety" among low-income consumers. [2] In a letter to the FDA reproduced with the media release on the website of Truth About Trade and Technology - a pro-biotech group, NOAAH Board Secretary Kevin Marchman, urged the FDA "to stop this type of deceptive milk-labeling practice that cheats consumers and raises unwarranted fears."
