Your Oatmeal May Be Killing You
Lewis Daly of Brooklyn, NY, claims– in his class-action lawsuit– that Quaker Oats most popular breakfast food contains the carcinogen glyphosate and therefore cannot claim that it’s 100% natural.
Given that glyphosate (used as a weed killer and sprayed on the oats as a drying agent shortly before harvest) is not natural and that the WHO (World Health Organization) declared the substance as “probably carcinogenic to humans” in 2015, the plantiff, Mr. Daly, claims that Quaker Oats is using “false, deceptive and misleading” advertising.
He is seeking $5 million in damages. At the time of this writing, Quaker Oats had not been reached for comment.
