Pleasanton, California based grocer Safeway announced on its official blog “Today at Safeway” that more than 100 of its Lucerne Private Brand dairy products are now rBST free. According to the blog:
Milk has been for some time, and now you’ll find butter, cream cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese, and Greek yogurt too. All made with milk from farmers who pledge not to treat their cows with the artificial growth hormone rBST. And more products to come. While the FDA states that no significant difference has been shown between milk derived from rBST treated cows and milk derived from non-rBST treated cows, I’m just more comfortable with food that hasn’t been meddled with, particularly foods & beverages that my kids eat & drink so often. And, these products still have the same great taste and value that you’ve come to expect from Lucerne – now that gives me greater peace of mind.
