Dairy Organization Lambastes Deceptive, Fear-Based Food Labeling

September 5, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
The National Milk Producers Federation has called for an end to label claims such as “GMO free” because they represent "deceptive labels and fear-based marketing” that damages consumer trust and jeopardizes “safe, sustainable farming practices.” The fear-based label problem encompasses genetically modified organism products, synthetic animal-growth hormones, and high fructose corn syrup, according to the NMPF. The campaign’s website, peelbackthelabel.org, targets yogurt maker Dannon for advertising non-GMO ingredients and Dean Foods for a "No GMOs" label on TruMoo chocolate milk.
