Organic Milk Is Off The Menu At Starbucks Starting Feb. 26

Starbucks made the switch to recombinant bovine growth hormone-free milk and are taking organic milk off the menu in all of their stores, effective Feb. 26.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Starbucks added organic milk to the menu in order to cater to customers who didn’t want to drink milk from animals that were given the artificial growth hormone, which helps cows produce more milk.

“Far and away, the No. 1 reason people are purchasing organic milk is because [it lacks] the growth hormone,” Michelle Gass, the company’s senior vice president of global strategy, told the WSJ.
