Organic milk off the menu at Starbucks

You may not have realized that you could ask for organic milk in your grande decaf nonfat vanilla latte, but it looks like you won't have the option at Starbucks much longer. This week, the cafe giant announced that it will take organic milk off the menu. Why? Because Starbucks' milk supply will no longer contain rBGH (the controversial bovine growth hormone), they feel organic is no longer necessary. No rBGH is certainly good news, but what about pesticide contamination? A lack of essential fatty acids? Not to mention animal treatment?
