The Center for Food Safety and Earthjustice have teamed up to file a lawsuit against the USDA for their recent approval of GM alfalfa.
While there are questions about the safety of any GM crop, alfalfa is particularly worrisome to the organic dairy industry. It’s a major feed crop, and has a much higher risk of cross-contamination than other GM crops. You can’t put an organic label on milk from cows that ate GM-contaminated feed.
