We the people are calling for a congressional investigation into USDA’s alleged attempts to block progress in sustainable food by illegally targeting Hampton Creek. According to an AP groundbreaking exposé and Freedom of Information documents, the USDA’s Egg Board committed these actions:
– Paying for deceptive endorsements without disclosing their source
– Attempting to block Just Mayo from being sold at Whole Foods
– Lobbying the FDA to go after Hampton Creek
– Threatening Hampton Creek’s CEO, Josh Tetrick
With our problems – drought, obesity, and poor communities struggling with access to good food – the idea that gov’t is engaged in illegal actions to halt progress is outrageous.
We demand accountability.
