October Update: Materials Added to the FOIA Reading RoomOctober 9th, 2017
Of particular note, the USDA sent six batches of documents in response to our request for the investigative files related to the suspension of Turkish organic certifier ETKO. ETKO lost its accreditation in Europe and Canada, and was suspended by the National Organic Program (NOP), but later regained its status as a certifier under the terms of a deal reached with the USDA.
We have also added documents pertaining to the Hydroponics FOIA request, NOP site visits to factory farms in Texas and New Mexico back in 2013, and a request into the NOP’s enforcement practices.
After review by Cornucopia researchers, all FOIA requests and documents returned by the government can be accessed in our FOIA Reading Room.
