Milk: Does it Measure Up? - One Year Later - A Report on the Accuracy of Net Content Labeling of Milk

Published

Author(s)

Lena Jung

Abstract

This federal/state study follows up on a study conducted last year on the accuracy of net content labeling of milk and other products. The 1997 study found that compliance with net content labeling requirements was very mixed. Many dairies and packagers did very well, while compliance levels at other firms were poor. In an effort to improve compliance, federal, state and local officials, in the past year, have worked closely with industry members, providing assistance and training to interested industry members. The follow-up study described in this report shows that this effort has resulted in increased accuracy in net content labeling but that further improvement Is needed.
