Target and Organic Milk

The Minneapolis StarTribune includes an article questioning the "organicness" of Target Corp's Archer Farms organic milk. (Was Target's organic milk just regular?, Sept. 29)  Target gets its organic milk from Aurora Organic Dairy, which also supplies Wal-Mart.  Aurora has been under fire lately for not following organic standards, particularly regarding treatment of its cows.
