Artificial hormone claims


The parent company of a Vermont cheese producer has agreed to scale-back claims about whether its dairy farmers use an artificially produced hormone to help their cows produce more milk. The Vermont Attorney General's office says that in 2009 and 2010 the Cabot Creamery Cooperative overstated claims that none of its farmers used the artificial hormone known as rBST. The attorney general's office says some of the products made by Cabot cannot be certified as free of rBST. (AP Photo/Toby Talbot)
