States File Suit Over Nutrition Standards

Six states have filed suit against the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture and Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue over roll-backs in the nutrition standards for school lunch and breakfast.

The suit, filed by California, New York, Illinois, Minnesota, New Mexico, Vermont, and the District of Columbia, argues the new standards, which soften sodium and whole-grain requirements, not only go against the will of Congress but were put into effect without a proper public comment period.
