Senators Push USDA Secretary To Enforce Organic Certification Law On Imports

July 15, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Three U.S. senators have urged the USDA to crack down on non-organic foreign goods being imported and sold fraudulently as USDA-certified. The fraud disclosed in various press reports "undermines the National Organic Program's continued success and hurts American farmers,” the letter to USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue said. Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) and Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) were the signatories of the letter, which noted that non-organic grains, particularly corn, were being sold as organic-certified [Image Credit: © USDA ]
