Living rBGH-Free in Ohio
Those who want to know what is (or isn’t) in their milk won a huge victory last week! After years of fighting in court, the state of Ohio has finally agreed to drop this issue and let consumers know that their milk is rBGH-Free. This is great news for all of us who don’t want artificial hormones in our milk.
With this victory, farmers who don’t use artificial hormones can label that their milk as rBGH-free. None of this happened without a lot of hard work from Food & Water Watch, and our allies and activists across the state. This win is the culmination of a long campaign that spread across the country. We’ve successfully defended farmers’ right to label and consumers’ right to know in every state the industry targeted—a lot of effort just for the opportunity to know what’s in your milk.
Over the last several years, we’ve protected consumers’ right to know what is in their milk in states across the country, from Pennsylvania to Kansas, to this final win here in Ohio. This is a great way to end the week!
Thanks so much to all of you who worked so hard on this issue. Take a moment to share this great news with your friends.
