North Carolina’s Hoofed Milk Bill
As of yesterday, North Carolina has passed a bill that no longer recognizes plant base "milk" as milk. If it does not come from a hoofed animal it will not be labeled as milk in North Carolina stores. The 2018 Farm Bill bans the marketing of milks consisting of almonds, coconut, soy, and yes even cockroach milk. According to Carolina’s Agriculture Commissioner, “Canada and the countries that make up the European Union are among nearly 200 nations that do not allow beverages to be labeled "milk" unless they are animal products”.These "milk" products are banned starting January 1st.
So, if you are in North Carolina after January 1st and looking for that almond milk of yours, don't look in the milk isle!
