Fighting for Labels of Nothing

Monsanto, an unloved agricultural biotechnology company, is behind a "grass-roots" organization dedicated to preventing consumers from knowing if their milk is free of the synthetic bovine growth hormone (rBST), which Monsanto sells as Posilac.

This case is a sad example of corporate PR masquerading as citizen activism -- and trying to get politicians to pass laws banning labels that state "rBST-free." Believe it or not, "evil" WalMart is one company that wants to serve consumers by using accurate labeling.

Looks like Monsanto is going to lose this one.
