This was in the newspaper today. We don't have a Kroger store, unfortunately. I hope they know what they are doing and don't consider Horizon a Hormone Free milk.

Kroger to sell hormone-free milk

Kroger Co. said Wednesday that by February 2008, it will no longer sell store-branded milk that contains the hormone rBST.

The hormone, recombinant bovine somatotropin, is given to cows to boost milk production. Although the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has found no harmful effects from the hormone, the grocery chain said it is making the transition because of consumer concerns.
"Our customers' increasing interest in their health and wellness is the basis for our decision," said William Boehm, senior vice president and president of manufacturing for Kroger (NYSE: KR). "We appreciate the willingness of dairy cooperatives across the country to work with us to make this transition in the next six months."
Kroger has already gone to rBST-free milk in its stores in the western half of the United States, and will now roll out the hormone-free milk in its Midwest and Southeast divisions.

The Cincinnati-based company owns more than 2,400 supermarkets and multi-department stores in 31 states. It also operates 15 dairies and three ice cream plants in the United States.
