TRUTH !!
Before milk dating was required by law, Al Capone lobbied for milk bottle
dating “to ensure the safety of the city's children."
Capone took two steps to move into the milk business. One was to acquire a
milk processor, Meadowmoor Dairies. The other was to have the Chicago City
Council pass a law requiring a visible date stamped on milk containers.
Capone is also responsible for the first ‘School Milk Program’... milk and
graham crackers for every kid, every day ...
