NMPF Urges FDA: Enforce U.S. Standards for Dairy Food Labeling

ARLINGTON, VA – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) long absence of enforcement of its own food standards has allowed the marketing of hundreds of deceptively labeled dairy imitators – a situation requiring immediate action by the federal government, National Milk Producers Federation officials told the agency during a high-level meeting in Maryland today.

The Long Family

Brooks and Katie Long are the 2017 Young Cooperator Vice Chaircouple and members of Maryland & Virginia Milk Producers Cooperative Association. They operate Long DeLite Farm in Williamsport, Md. The farm is a seventh-generation operation that has been in the family and at the same location since 1831. They milk about 60 cows – crossbred cattle, plus some registered Jerseys and Milking Shorthorns – on a rotational grazing operation, where the cows consume a majority of their forage from grass on paddocks on which they are moved around daily.
