First and formost I should admit to not being completely surprised by this since Kashi sold themselves out to Kellogs.
However, I am so proud of the Green Grocer for stepping up to the plate by yanking Kashi products from their shelves:
The yellow signs read: “You might be wondering where your favorite Kashi cereals have gone. It has recently come to our attention that 100% of the soy used in Kashi is Genetically Modified and that when the USDA tested the grains used there were found to be pesticides that are known carcinogens and hormone disruptors.”
That’s one of the few times I may ever muster a “thank you” to the USDA. As consumers it is our right to know these details. We are unaware of political B.S. and are bullied and blinded by the false pretense that the FDA and USDA are out to protect us. They’re not.
In my opinion, there is nothing worse than thinking you’re eating healthy when in reality you may not be.
It is news like this:

…that make us more informed and can therefore make better choices when we’re shopping.
Make the effort to know the corporate family trees, and the small companies that sell themselves out to the big companies–IE: Kashi, LARABAR, Back to Nature, Muir Glen–just to name a few.
Is one of your favorite “Natural” companies tangled up in that web? They are [potentially] corrupt!
HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT, RIGHT?!
I’ve posted the image above on my facebook page several weeks back, so hopefully this isn’t a complete shock to you, but if it is, I’m so glad you’re seeing it now.
At the very least, I hope people who would otherwise not know, know.
