USDA recently published regulations that provide better living conditions, including more access to the outdoors, for animals raised for organic meat and poultry, and for organic egg production. The regulations stand to improve the lives of millions of animals AND uphold the integrity of the USDA organic label.
Amazing news, right? Not so fast. This week, the Senate Appropriations Committee may consider an unacceptable policy rider that would block USDA from putting the new organic animal welfare regulations into effect.
As consumers who believe in the organic label and who care about the welfare of all animals, we need your help putting a stop to this appalling attempt to stonewall the USDA.
Help us ensure that the Senate Appropriations Committee DOES NOT block USDA in carrying out the new organic animal welfare regulations by calling them today.
