Mike, I'm an organic farmer in Ky and I sure couldn't find anything that said that but I also didn't see alot about packaging period. Some of the catch words i've seen is "food grade package" designated organic containers that kind of stuff but it was very spread out in the federal organic standard. I know I cant reuse egg cartons when I sell my eggs but thats because of the Ky egg marketing law, I've never seen it actually stated in NOS or in our local stuff either. 
...Good luck.

this another way the new federal standards might hurt the small organic
market farmer?
