The Big Dump

Watch Ronnie Cummins, accompanied by OCA staff members, don hazmat suits to raid their local food store and scoop up all the Ben and Jerry’s Roundup Ready ice cream.

Ten of 11 samples of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream sent by OCA to an independent lab tested positive for glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide. A peer-reviewed long-term feeding study published in 2012, and again in 2014, found that doses of 0.1 parts-per-billion (ppb) of glyphosate—below the levels of glyphosate found in Ben & Jerry’s ice cream—caused liver and kidney toxicity as well as hormonal disturbances in rats.

It’s time for consumers, and retail stores, to #DumpBenandJerrys!
