It’s almond milk, not almond sweat – sign the letter to FDA in support of plant-based food products

We all agree that consumers should have clear information about what products they are buying in the grocery store. In September 2018, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) unveiled a solicitation for public comment on the use of dairy foods in the labeling

alternatives to dairy products.

jobs throughout our nation.

to those who are killed or injured, there are countless others whose lives are forever changed by the deaths of and injuries to their loved ones. Gun violence touches every segment of our society. It increases the probability of deaths in incidents of domestic
