Organic Products

Important: If you supply products for sale on Omigod, Dibs!, you must comply with all federal, state, and local laws and Omigod, Dibs! policies applicable to those products and product listings.

In the United States, use of the term “organic” is regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (“USDA”). Any agricultural product that claims to be “organic” or uses the USDA organic seal on its packaging must comply with the USDA organic regulations.

To be sold, labeled, or represented as “organic” in the United States, agricultural products --- whether raw or processed --- must be certified to either the USDA organic regulations or to an international standard that the USDA has named as equivalent. In either case, the products must:

  • Be produced according to the USDA organic requirements;
  • Comply with organic labeling requirements; and
  • Identify the name of the product’s certifier.

USDA’s organic regulations describe the specific standards required for you to use the word “organic” or the USDA organic seal on food, feed, or fiber products. For more information on the organic regulations and labeling requirements, please see the following websites. Omigod, Dibs! provides these resources for informational purposes only. We encourage you to consult with legal counsel if you have questions about the laws and regulations concerning your products.
