Dairy Pride Act Reintroduced to Combat Product Substitutes
"Dairy farmers in Wisconsin work tirelessly every day to ensure that their milk meets high standards for nutritional value and quality," Baldwin said. "Imitation products have gotten away with using dairy's good name for their own benefit, which is against the law and must be enforced. Mislabeling of plant-based products as 'milk' hurts our dairy farmers."
As part of the measure, the Food and Drug Administration would be required to issue guidance for nationwide enforcement of mislabeled imitation dairy products within 90 days and require the FDA to report to Congress two years after enactment to hold the agency accountable for this update in their enforcement obligations.
