Promiseland Sues To Stop USDA From Suspending Its Organic Certification

February 18, 2011: 12:30 PM EST
Promiseland Livestock has sued the U.S. Department of Agriculture seeking to stop the agency from suspending the company's organic certification. Promiseland's lawsuit claims that the USDA has abused its power by seeking to remove Promiseland's organic certification after the company allegedly refused to hand over records. In 2008, the USDA sued Promiseland, accusing the company of violating several organic standards. A judge later ruled that Promiseland violated USAD rules when it refused to provide records to inspectors who visited its facilities in Nebraska and Missouri.
