A new law for selling milk went into effect this week across Pennsylvania. It centers around the sell-by date you see on the bottle.

Until now, dairy farmers were required by law to use an arbitrary 17-day window to determine a sell-by date and to throw out milk when that date has arrived.

Food safety standards show milk can stay fresh for up to 21 days.

The new law lets dairy farmers set sell-by dates on a case-by-case basis which should result in less waste.

Last month, 14 of our dairy farms in Maine, as well as dozens of dairy farms across northern New England, got an unexpected and disappointing notice from Danone of North America saying that they were discontinuing their contracts with our organic dairy farmers in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and elsewhere.
