Update on Pennsylvania and BGH

Voluntary BGH Labeling

Apparently, Governor Rendell has decided to step back and reconsider the state’s new ban on the voluntary labeling of BGH free milk. The implementation of the regulations (originally scheduled for January 1) has been delayed at least a month for the Governor’s review. You may want to weigh in on the debate by emailing Governor Rendell.

Here is the link Governor Rendell
then click on the Contact the Governor button on the left of the screen.

I have just begun buying Perrydell Dairy Farm milk because it is BGH free and local (based in York). But the new regulations will affect their ability to continue labeling in this way. Even though I live in Maryland, I wrote in to express my concern. We all need to protect our right to know what we are eating and how our food is raised.
