Which of the following is NOT a condition required by the government to label food “organic”?

A. contains 95% organic ingredients

B. animals must have access to the outdoors

C. produced without conventional pesticides

D. crop must be harvested by hand

A

Answer: D. crop must be harvested by hand

Food products labeled as organic are grown and processed without the use of any synthetic chemicals, synthetic fertilizers, or even pesticides. The percentage of organic ingredients present in a product gives rise to the labeling requirements. Any food product in the US today certified as “organic” must contain nothing less than 95% ingredients produced organically. Crops do not have to be harvested by hand to be organic.
