Organic standards are under fire in Washington. An industry-sponsored "sneak attack" rider to the 2006 Agriculture Appropriations Bill would take away traditional organic community and National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) control over organic standards, and centralize control in the hands of White House-appointed USDA officials. This would likely open the door for non-organic animal feed and hundreds of synthetic ingredients and processing aids in organic foods.

The sneak attack rider is being pushed by powerful corporate interests such as Kraft, Dole, General Mills, and the Grocery Manufacturers of America (which includes Wal-Mart and the supermarket chains). Take action today to stop this "unfriendly takeover" of America's alternative food system by giant food processors and supermarket chains.
