Now this is just sneaky

This couldn't wait until tomorrow. Our governement is trying to sneak in some new organic standards and today is the last day to have a voice. {They only had it open for 7 days} The USDA's proposal is to allow certain products {beer, sausage, fish oil and others} to be labeled as organic even when they contain conventionally-raised ingredients.

If you want to keep your organics, well. . . organic, please read this and sign.

Phelan, I have posted a link to your posting. I agree this needs attention ASAP!
I am new to your blog but I'm really enjoying what I see so far.

I did it---however I went straight to the government site and wrote my own strongly opinionated piece for them to chew on.

I went to the link, too, & signed. Not sure if they'll take mine seriously as I'm not in the States.

Crap - I usually get word of these things in time to at least send an email. But I filled out the form at OCA and sent it anyway. Thanks for letting us know about it!

Killi - I hate to tell you this, but Johanns won't take any of it seriously unless you're Bush or the CEO of a large food corporation! But we keep trying...
