GREEN BAY, Wis. — Legislation proposed by U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., that would prohibit mislabeling of non-dairy foods was reintroduced today in Congress.
The DAIRY PRIDE Act would make it illegal to market products using dairy terms unless those products are derived from milk that comes from a hooved animal.
The bill, which was first introduced in 2017 but failed to advance, comes amid a proliferation of plant-based food products marketed as milk, cheese, yogurt and other dairy foods. The mislabeling of these imitation foods misleads customers about nutritional value, the bill states.
