General Mills claims that its Nature Valley granola bars are “Made with 100% Natural Whole Grain Oats.” Given that claim, and given that there are no commercially grown genetically engineered oats (at least, not yet), you’d naturally expect Nature Valley granola bars to be free of glyphosate, right?
You would be wrong. Testing by an independent laboratory reveals that Nature Valley granola bars do indeed contain glyphosate, the key (and cancer-causing) ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup.
We thought you’d like to know. We also thought you’d agree that General Mills should be forced to stop deceiving you and millions of other consumers.
So today, OCA and our allies, Beyond Pesticides and Moms Across America, sued the junk food giant and its Nature Valley subsidiary for violating the District of Columbia Consumer Protection Procedures Act (“DC CPPA”), D.C. Code §§ 28-3901, et seq. by making “false and misleading representations and omissions” about its Nature Valley products.
