Toxic oil drilling wastewater from companies like Chevron is being used to grow some food in California - food that is sold in grocery stores across the country!
The wastewater contains chemicals used in fossil fuel extraction, including some that are linked to cancer and reproductive harm, such as ethylbenzene and toluene.
This practice threatens the safety of our children and the adults who eat this food, the farm workers who irrigate and pick the crops, and the environment.
Popular food companies that market their brands as “healthy” are involved in this practice, including The Wonderful Company, known for brands such as POM Wonderful, Wonderful Pistachios, and Halos mandarins, and Grimmway Farms, a major U.S. carrot producer, including “Bunny-Luv” Carrots”
Tell these companies: I won’t buy your products until you and California Governor Jerry Brown put an end to this dangerous practice.
