The Food and Drug Administration is moving to make sure non-dairy products aren't called milk. FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said he intends to enforce the definition of milk as something that comes from a cow, not a plant. The rule has been on the books for a long time, but it hasn't been enforced against products such as soy milk and almond milk. Gottlieb says the FDA will step up enforcement over the next year or so. The announcement comes as the American Dairy Coalition rolls out an effort this week to persuade the FDA not to expand the definition of milk to include drinks derived from plants.
