A new poll finds the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) proposed rules for labeling organic food products will seriously mislead consumers into thinking the products are safer, better in quality or more nutritious. The survey, conducted by International Communications Research of Media, PA on behalf of the National Center for Public Policy Research, found two-thirds of the public would be misled by the proposed USDA seal on several key issues: 68 percent said they would interpret a product labeled "USDA Certified Organic" to be safer to eat than non-organic foods;67 percent believed "USDA Certified Organic" to be better than non-organic foods; and,62 percent believe "USDA Certified Organic" to be healthier for consumers than non-organic foods.
