Monsanto vs. the Milkman

Monsanto vs. the Milkman

In 2003, Monsanto brought a suit against Portland, Maine’s Oakhurst Dairy for labeling is products with the statement "our Farmer's Pledge not to use artificial growth hormones." Monsanto claimed the statement amounted to "deceptive" and "misleading" marketing because it implied rBST-free products were superior and safer that rBST milk, despite FDA approval of rBST milk. Many viewed the lawsuit as not only an attack on consumers-right-to-know, but part of a larger trend of Monsanto targeting small producers.
