The suit, which was brought upon the food-maker by consumers across multiple states, including California and New York, explained the complaint that this claim is not true since the oatmeal contains glyphosate, a synthetic biocide used to kill weeds.

    Making all-natural claims on labels has brought controversy to many companies.Green Marketing Tactics Misleading Consumers

    The consumer market is fraught with controversy right now, with much attention being paid to how well a company is (or, in most cases, isn't) using its product labeling to accurately and honestly inform a shopper of the ingredients and sourcing practices used to make the item.

    Much of the scrutiny has been pointed at food and beverage manufacturers. For example, with Vermont soon to be the first state in America to enforce the mandatory labeling of GMOs, the pressure is intensifying for Congress to pass a national standard.
