GMO-Based Ingredients

Container of Wesson Vegetable Oil

ConAgra Foods, Inc. is settling a class action alleging that it should not have labeled Wesson oil products as “natural” because they contain genetically-modified (GMO) ingredients.

This Lawsuit alleges certain products have been falsely labeled "100% natural," "All Natural," or "Nothing Artificial;" where in fact those products contain Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). Kashi denies any false advertising. Kashi has agreed to a monetary settlement, as well as removing the "All Natural" label from their products containing GMOs.
