New York Milk Labeling Bill Gets Senate Companion

New York Senate Bill 7997 proposes to prohibit the labeling of any product as a “milk product” unless that product contains dairy or is a “product obtained by modifying the chemical or 18 physical characteristics of milk, cream, or whey by using cultures, enzymes, solvents, heat, pressure, cooling, vacuum, ultrafiltration, or other similar processes.” A similar bill, Assembly Bill 8144, was introduced in the New York Assembly last year.
