We just received this information via the Organic Consumer's Association and we say "HIP HIP HURRAY!" We use Oberweis as our local milkman and have been opposed to rBGH since it's onset.
CONSUMER AND FARMER VICTORY!
MONSANTO FINALLY FORCED TO DUMP RBGH
Monsanto announced on August 6 it will "divest" or sell off its controversial genetically engineered animal drug, recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH). Monsanto's divestment of rBGH is a direct result of 14 years of determined opposition by organic consumer, public interest, and family farmer groups. Since its founding, the Organic Consumers Association has campaigned against this cruel and dangerous drug, pointing out to organic and health-minded consumers that rBGH-tainted dairy products pose unacceptable dangers to humans from increased antibiotic residues and elevated levels of a potent cancer tumor promoter called IGF-1. OCA's "Millions Against Monsanto" campaign has generated over a quarter million emails and petition signatures on the topic of rBGH, helping make rBGH one of the most controversial food products in the world.

Now we need to save the seeds by helping push through federal legislation to require mandatory labeling and safety-testing of GMOs (genetically modified organisms.)
