QUAKER OATS IS BEING SUED FOR PUTTING A CANCER-CAUSING PESTICIDE IN THEIR OATMEAL
Namely, California and New York customers have filed a lawsuit against the owner, due to their allegation that their oatmeal involves traces of the pesticide glyphosate.
This followed the test done to analyze the ingredients of Quaker Oats Quick 1-Minute oatmeal, by an independent lab in California. Researchers used liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry, which is a procedure often used by medical and chemical labs for drug research.
They found that the tested sample contained traces of glyphosate, and even though it was discovered in lower amounts than the legal allowable limits, the company was sued for “false advertising” since it claims that their product is “100% Natural”.
The Quaker Oats Company replied that they did not use this chemical in the oatmeal, so its traces are probably due to the pesticides sprayed on the oats by farmers. They declared:
“Any levels of glyphosate that may remain are trace amounts and significantly below any limits which have been set by the E.P.A. as safe for human consumption.”
This chemical acts as an active ingredient in numerous pesticides, including Roundup, which is sprayed on crops worldwide. Its use has been condemned by food activists for years, claiming that it leads to severe health issues.
