A PESTICIDE containing weedkiller has been found “at alarming levels” in popular foods across the US including cereal and snacks.
Honey Nut Cheerios, Kellogg’s Corn Flakes, Raisin Bran and Frosted Flakes and Doritos Cool Ranch, Ritz Crackers are among the affected products.
These best-sellers were reportedly found to contain higher than average traces of glyphosate – a widely used weedkiller used on commercially genetically modified (GM) crops.
The results were uncovered by campaigning groups Food Democracy Now and The Detox Project on Monday.
The groups are now calling for corporate and regulatory action to take action to address consumer safety concerns.
