NMPF outlines labeling solution

The National Milk Producers Federation has filed a citizen’s petition urging the FDA to take enforcement action against misbranded nondairy foods.

Executive Vice President Tom Balmer says it’s only fair other products that are trying to take advantage of the health halo of milk obey current laws.

“Products that are milk-like or yogurt-like are not actually milk or yogurt and the distinctions are critical to inform decision making by consumers.” 

He says the FDA opening a public comment on the issue shows the agency’s interest in the subject is growing.

More than 13,000 comments were submitted to the FDA regarding dairy labeling requirements.
