Yoplait Eliminates rBGH Milk from Products

ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Yoplait has announced to its hospital customers that it will stop using milk from cattle injected with the growth hormone rBGH (recombinant bovine growth hormone) to make its yogurt products, beginning in early August 2009. Yoplait is among the first major manufacturer to totally eliminate rBGH from their product line, a move widely seen as a response to demands by the health care sector and consumer groups to provide rBGH-free products.

The health care system purchases approximately $12 billion worth of food and beverages annually. In their drive to serve safer, more sustainable foods, major health systems across the country are switching to rBGH-free (also called rBST) milk and milk products, due to the evidence showing the hormone's adverse effects on animals and potential to harm human health. The use of rBGH in banned in Canada, the European Union, Australia and Japan.

"This speaks to the collective buying power of hospitals to shift the marketplace," said Jamie Harvie, Health Care Without Harm Food Coordinator. "Now we need Dannon and other milk and milk product producers to show the same leadership."

"This is great news for the health of consumers, communities and the planet," stated Pat Burdullis, R.D Administrator, Non Clinical Contracts, Catholic Healthcare West (CHW) Supply Chain Management, one of the many hospitals across the country that have initiated steps to eliminate their use of dairy produced with rBGH. "To date we are approximately 90 percent rBGH-free in our liquid dairy." CHW is the largest Catholic health system in the United States and was among many healthcare organizations that sent letters to their suppliers requesting products produced without rBGH.
