If a food is labeled "organic" according to the USDA, is it still subject to the laws and regulations enforced by FDA?

Yes. The USDA requirements for the use of the term "organic" are separate from the laws and regulations that FDA enforces for foods. Food products labeled with organic claims must comply with both USDA regulations for the organic claim and FDA regulations for labeling.
