Did you know that your Heinz ketchup, which the company claims is ‘all natural,’ is really full of toxic, genetically modified ingredients? It’s bursting with GM corn, which contains at least 5 things that really shouldn’t be in a food condiment.
Heinz was also sued for advertising their distilled white vinegar as ‘all natural’ when it contains genetically modified corn. Representation for the complaint filed in California said:
“Heinz’s representations were false, deceptive, misleading and unfair to consumers, who were injured in fact by purchasing products that the defendants had claimed were “all natural.”
Further, Heinz is one of the many junk food companies who have given tons of money to defeat GMO labeling campaigns in both Washington and California. They’ve spent over $500,000 so far to keep you from knowing what is in your food.
Natural Society reported on Heinz’s false advertising a few months back. Since then, members of the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association, of which Heinz is a part of, have suggested that ‘voluntary’ labeling be the norm with GMOs.
Kansas Republican Michael Pompeo has introduced a federal bill – supported by the agriculture industry – to preempt states from passing mandatory GMO labeling laws. The bill was written by the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), which represents more than 300 food manufacturers and trade groups, including companies like Coca-Cola, Pepsi, General Mills, Nestle, Unilever, Heinz, and others.
