However, "As of October 2002, all agricultural products labeled 'organic' must be in compliance with U. S. organic law. The word 'organic' on U. S. products will mean that the ingredients and production methods have been verified by an accredited certification agency as meeting or exceeding USDA standards for organic production" (http://ota.com/organic/us_standards.html). Furthermore, the California Department of Food and Agriculture has its own Organic Program, "responsible for enforcement of the federal Organic Foods Production Act of 1990 and the [http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displaycode?section=fac&amp;group=45001-46000&amp;file=46000-46029 California Organic Products Act of 2003]...protect[ing] consumers, producers, handlers, processors and retailers by establishment of standards under which fresh agricultural products/foods may be labeled and/or sold as 'organic'" with "The California Department of Public Health enforcing laws pertaining to processed products marketed as 'organic'" (from http://www.cdfa.ca.gov/is/i_&amp;_c/organic.html).<br> + <br> + Products labeled "100% Organic" and carrying the "USDA Organic" seal contain ''all'' organically produced ingredients. Products that are made from at least 95% organic ingredients, and have remaining ingredients that are approved for use in organic products may also carry the "USDA Organic" seal. In addition, products that contain at least 70% organic ingredients may label those on the ingredient listing. (From http://www.ota.com/definition/quickoverview.html). Note that the organic ingredients can be "unimportant" ones (crops which are hearty and don't require pesticides), as opposed to important ones. For instance, strawberries are typically cultivated with large quantities of pesticides, so organic strawberries are hard to find.

Part 205) promulgated by the USDA through the National Organic Program ("NOP") under this act." in practical terms, that reduces to "The regulations prohibit the use of genetic engineering, ionizing radiation, and sewage sludge in organic production and handling.
