This was mentioned during an interview on the Dianne Rehm show (NPR) back in July. The topic was GMO's and the FDA failure to regulate them.
It's a wonderful decision, without a doubt, but I know several organic agriculturalists in our neck of the woods. They purchase their chicks or calves from wholesale lots (which, at the time, met organic standards) where the majority of the animals were clones or clone-offpring. They raised their animals according to the NOSB guidelines which made their products and by-products "Organic."
How and when the changes in the guidelines will be enforced remains to be seen. Hopefully, it will be yesterday. Once the GMO's get into the general populations (Monsanto, etc.), it's impossible to weed (no pun intended) them out of the gene pools.
