USA: ALLEGATIONS AGAINST AURORA ORGANIC DAIRY CAST OUT

The US Department of Agriculture have closed an investigation into Aurora Organic Dairy’s compliance with federal standards for organic products after no violations were found. According to the Denver Business Journal, the investigation by USDA’s National Organic Program was spurred by a May 1 report in The Washington Post that cast doubt on Aurora’s claims of being organic, including allegations that animals were not seen outside on pasture. Had the Post’s investigation been vindicated   the company could have been charged for misleading consumers.
