(May 23) Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Bentonville, Ark., has agreed to remove all product information from its green shelf tags bearing the title “Wal-Mart Organics” and substitute the U.S. Department of Agriculture organic seal to identify products that have been certified organic.

According to a USDA news release, the change followed a compliance review by USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service.

AMS found no evidence to show that any product certified as “USDA Organic” was mislabeled, but did determine that the placement of the shelf tags in some stores had the potential to confuse consumers, the release said.
