ConAgra Suit Over "All Natural" Label on GMO Cooking Oils Highlights Greenwash:

ConAgra Suit Over "All Natural" Label on GMO Cooking Oils Highlights Greenwash:

“All natural,” which implies that the food is as close to nature as possible. In reality, the government requires that natural meats, poultry and dairy food contain only ingredients natural to the product. That means no artificial colors or preservatives. The label doesn’t address how the food was raised. Food labeled “natural,” according to the USDA definition, does not contain artificial ingredients or preservatives and the ingredients are only minimally processed. However, they may contain antibiotics, growth hormones, and other similar chemicals. Regulations are fairly lenient for foods labeled “natural.” Labels are evaluated to prevent mislabel-ing but no inspections are conducted and producers are not required to be certified.
