House Bill 119 would define what products can be labeled as milk

Virginia News

RICHMOND, Va. (WFXR) – Dairy farmers in Virginia are struggling. But a new Bill out of Richmond could help plummeting sales.

Americans are drinking less milk than ever before.

More are turning to plant-based alternatives instead.

House Bill 119 would define milk as “the secretion of a healthy, hooved animal.”

It also states that a food product is unlawfully misbranded if its label states that it is milk and fails to meet the state’s new definition.
