Court Says Ohio Must Require Food Labels To Disclose Synthetic Hormones

September 30, 2010: 11:42 AM EST

A federal appellate court has invalidated several provisions in Ohio Dept. of Agriculture organic food rules that, according to the Organic Trade Association, cramped consumers’ and producers’ ability to get truthful label information about the use of synthetic hormones in organic milk and dairy products. Organic farmers who want to apply the organic label to their products are barred from using synthetic growth hormones, genetically engineered organisms (GMOs), antibiotics and toxic, persistent, synthetic pesticides. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit agreed with the OTA and a dairy farmers group that consumers in Ohio have the right to know whether purpotedly organic products on grocery store shelves are produced without synthetic growth hormones.
