   Consumer Protection

What do commercial scales and raw eggs and everything in between have in common?  They're inspected and regulated by the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA). TDA has strong consumer protection programs, which include inspecting grocery store scales for accuracy, ensuring eggs meet specific quality standards, verifying that nursery and floral products sold in Texas are free from harmful pests and diseases, and mandating that pest control applications are performed safely by qualified individuals. TDA's Agriculture and Consumer Protection Division also works hard to ensure that planting seed sold in Texas is truthfully labeled and meets the highest standards. TDA's consumer protection efforts promote success, unity and prosperity for the people of Texas and provides for a fair and equitable marketplace for Texas businesses.
