Help Stop the Dairy Pride Act and Support Milk Alternatives!

i Aug 18th by

Here’s a ridiculous, narrow-interest bill we’d like to defeat on general principle. It flies in the face of common sense and would hurt animals at the same time. Who thinks of these things?

Pasado’s Safe Haven has posted this description and a two-minute action alert that’s worth our time to follow.

“The dairy industry recently introduced the Dairy Pride Act (S.130) which promotes animal products by making it illegal to label non-dairy foods with terms such as ‘milk,’ ‘ice cream,’ and yogurt.’ This not only includes new products, such as almond milk, but also impacts products that have been around for centuries like coconut milk. The dairy industry is responsible for a tremendous amount of animal cruelty, negative environmental impacts, and human-health hazards – and now they are feeling the threat of increasingly conscious consumers. In fact, with more people becoming food aware, all milk should be accurately labeled, including milk produced by cows, which should be labeled as ‘cow milk.’

 “PLEASE TAKE 2 MINUTES to urge your lawmakers to oppose the misguided legislation of the Dairy Pride Act (S.130) and instead require that dairy products also be labeled correctly.”
