Yay Starbucks for ridding its milk supply of the controversial artificial growth hormone rBGH. (Apparently last month, they stopped selling pastries made with trans fats at half of their locations. Which half, we wonder? And what about the other half?)
Spokesman Brandon Borrman says the company boosted its hormone-free milk percentage from 27 to 37 percent this month and will keep going until all the milk is hormone-free. So far, they've found hormone-free milk suppliers in Northern California, New England, New Mexico, Montana, Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Alaska.
It's especially telling that Borrman mentioned that the action isn't necessary for Starbucks' overseas locations because the supplement is not allowed in "most other nations."
Taiwan and Mexico never allowed Starbucks to use rBGH milk. Why have we tolerated it for so long?
