Pushing Organic Foods

The USDA’s guidelines for organic food are below

 

 

Before a product can be labeled ‘organic,’ a government-approved certifier must inspect the farm to ensure the operation meets USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food, before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant, must also be certified.

 

 

 

Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products comefrom animals that are not given antibiotics or growth hormones.

 

 

Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizer made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation.

Before a product can be labeled ‘organic,’ a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified, too.
