(The Hill) The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is removing references to the term "midget" raisins from its regulations following a complaint from the Little People of America.
The USDA's Agriculture and Marketing Service announced Wednesday it will remove the references in the agency's grading standards.
The term was used to identify small raisins in the USDA's grading standard, but commenters told the agency that the term, which many people find offensive, is "socially unacceptable."

The USDA called the revision a "matter of common decency."
