USDA Uncovers More Organic Fraud

Last month we reported that our organic certificate had been taken from our website, photoshopped, and used in the creation of a fraudulent organic certificate.

At the time, the USDA had uncovered several other fraudulent certificates.

Other companies reported on the USDA website include a farm in Mexico selling watermelon and tamarind, a company out of Mexico selling eggs and lemon, a company out of China selling sandalwood essential oil, a tea producer out of Colorado, and a processor out of India. (Details here on the USDA website.)
