ACTION ITEM

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is seeking public comment on a rule that would continue its policy of allowing the indiscriminate and illegal addition of synthetic nutrients to organic foods.

Nutrients occur naturally in foods, and many are essential for good health.  But organic consumers expect that any added nutrients in processed foods be derived from natural or organic sources rather than synthetic versions that are mass-produced in laboratories and factories by chemical corporations, often using hazardous petrochemical solvents.

If you agree that organic foods should be free from unnecessary synthetic ingredients, as the federal organic regulations require, please make your voice heard.

Make your voice heard.  Full instructions for commenting to the USDA:
