    Monsanto may be right with their science, and Quaker is correct with their comments about the source; but consumers have changed. They are better educated with more information available, and better options are available to allow consumers to simply switch product.

    Investors in these companies should take note of the poor response by the organizations. These statements will not survive social media.

  • This is frustrating and scary. We are paying for food that is potentially poisoning us and how are we to know on a day to day basis? Perhaps we should all become our own farmers?

  • Monsanto is the worse.

    I remember watching a documentary about how they would take farmers to court over the farmers reusing the organic seeds for crops. A tactic farmers used for decades. Monsanto would make farmers buy in on using their seeds or get squeezed out by court cost, legal fees and even

    I remember watching a documentary about how they would take farmers to court over the farmers reusing the organic seeds for crops. A tactic farmers used for decades. Monsanto would make farmers buy in on using their seeds or get squeezed out by court cost, legal fees and even secretly spraying the farmers crops with a plant killer chemical.

    There’s an eerie echo of reflexive denial in these corporate responses, and with so many industry-backed studies (and a receding EPA), it’s challenging for any of us to assess which of the dueling assertions are worth believing. This is the old-fashioned version of fake news: Which studies are to be trusted and which have been compromised by bias? (And in terms of the marketplace, what impact will the noise have when consumers pass those Cheerios boxes in the supermarket aisle?)

  • That is too bad. Unfortunately we have ones in the office and I just ate some recently.
