Quaker Oats Is Being Sued Because People Still Don’t Know What ‘Natural’ Means

Quaker Oats is being sued over the big “100% Natural” label on the front of its box. What else is in that bucket o’ oats that makes the label a lie? Nothing, say the plantiffs—it is, indeed, just oats. Their complaint is that the oats were grown using pesticides. That, they claim, should be sufficient to keep the natural label off it.

But they do have a definition for “organic” which is what the plaintiffs evidently think Quaker Oats is claiming to be even though it’s not anywhere on the label.

There’s no medical evidence that eating non-organic Quaker oats, or any other conventionally-grown food, is unhealthy or harmful at all.  Stop worrying about whether food is “organic” or not, and quit eating so much fucking salt and sugar, people. THAT is what makes you unhealthy.
