USDA tightens organic standards —

The USDA has established new, tighter standards for companies that want their products certified as USDA Organic:

USDA published a final rule to strengthen oversight on products that can bear the “USDA Organic” seal in an effort to reinforce a system that had been exploited to allow products that were not truly organic to slip through the cracks. The rule takes effect on March 19, 2024.
