We’d heard that the California Department of Food and Agriculture had settled with Organic Pastures over the CDFA’s recall of OP products in 2007. It’s my understanding that settled generally means (as Answers.com puts it):
To come to an agreement, especially to resolve a lawsuit out of court.
And it may involve payment by one of the settling parties to the other. From Organic Pastures’ News page, we have the Settlement Agreement between the CDFA and Organic Pastures.
I don’t know about you, but it seems that the vagueness with which it’s written leaves much to be imagined or assumed, which is a strange way of writing a legal document; these usually lay out everything in detail. That is, it doesn’t say much beyond conveying that there was a CDFA recall of OP products and that the parties don’t agree on the value (or, to Organic Pastures, the loss) caused by the recall, and so they’re settling and the CDFA is paying OP. It doesn’t, for instance, say that the recall was in error, or why the CDFA settled with Organic Pastures.
Of course, events since then have been quite enlightening in terms of the CDFA going after California organic milk.
