Duffy Leads Effort To Clarify Milk Definition


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy, co-chairman of the Congressional Dairy Farmers Caucus, today put forward bipartisan legislation in the House that requires the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to take enforcement action against manufacturers labeling plant-based beverages as milk. 


Duffy released the following statement on the legislation:


“You can’t milk an almond, and the FDA must clarify and enforce the definition of milk that’s already on the books, that milk comes from cows. Wisconsin dairy farmers and consumers across the country deserve this important clarification. I’m proud that both my Republican and Democrat colleagues have continued to pressure the FDA to fix this.”
