The analogy to HRT is irrelevant. There is no chemical difference between wild BST and rBST. Milk from cows treated with any type of BST is chemically indistinguishable from that of untreated cows. Until there is credible scientific evidence of any difference in the milk, consumers _are_ not sufficiently well-informed to make a decision. Sellers of milk from rBST-free cows have no legal right to suggest by absence labeling that it is somehow different because it is not.
