But they have since redacted and removed their newsletter from their website.
According to thisdishisvegetarian.com,
Seems like the American Farm Bureau, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, and others didn’t take too kindly to USDA’s progressive stance, accusing the agency of turning its back on the meat and dairy industries. Once called out by these very powerful (too powerful) groups, the USDA quickly removed the newsletter from its site and backpedalled, saying the statement was posted “without proper clearance.”
They say it was really just meant as an "internal memo". The AP reported:
The posting earlier this week was part of an internal newsletter that discusses how staff can reduce their environmental impact while dining at the agency’s cafeteria.
