Wisconsin group asks USDA to investigate Target


Cornucopia, Wis. A farm policy group in Wisconsin asked the U.S. Agriculture Department on Tuesday to investigate whether Target Corp. misled consumers by claiming some soy milk it sells is organic.

Jana O'Leary, a spokeswoman for Target, said the company is researching the complaint.
