FILE - In this July 10, 2008 file photo, farm workers make their way across a field shrouded in fog as they hoe weeds from a burley tobacco crop near Warsaw, Ky. Two years after the Obama administration backed off a rule that would have banned children from dangerous agriculture jobs, advocates and lawmakers are trying anew to get kids off tobacco farms. The multi-pronged approach includes legislation to ban kids from working on such farms; pursuit of a narrower federal rule than the one that was scuttled; and public pressure on tobacco companies from lawmakers and health groups.

In this photo taken Oct. 9, 2104, body products on display at a Whole Foods in Washington. There’s a strict set of standards for organic foods. But the rules are looser for household cleaners, textiles, cosmetics and the organic dry cleaners down the street. Wander through the grocery store and check out the shelves where some detergents, hand lotions and clothing proclaim organic bona fides. Absent an Agriculture Department seal or certification, there are few ways to tell if those organic claims are bogus. Some retailers, like Whole Foods, have stepped in with their own requirements for what can be labeled organic. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)
