Parliamentarians are calling for enforcement of dairy standards

A bipartisan parliamentary group wants the FDA to use dairy identity standards when developing labeling guidelines for plant-based alternative milk.

In a recent letter to the Directors of the Food and Drug Administration and the Office of Management and Budget, representatives said the FDA had not enforced dairy identity standards for decades, which was a nutritional error. It states that it is connected to information.

The group points to studies that reflect consumer confusion and findings from the medical community that plant-based counterfeit products are not nutritionally equivalent.

The FDA will publish a draft or final guidance on plant-based milk replacement labels by the end of the year.
