It never hurts to ask! After a concerned consumer and supporter of science and agriculture reached out to Mann’s Fresh Vegetables about their non-GMO label, the company came back with a surprising answer. They are removing it.
According to PR Week, Mann Packing is removing the non-GMO verified check from its single-cut lettuce products in its next print run … because there is no GMO lettuce. And it looks like this is just the beginning of ripping off the label.
Mann’s Fresh Vegetables responded to Angela Christine Jone’s post on Facebook:
“Many vegetables are non-gmo and will always be non-gmo. We are working to better educate our consumers so they can understand what that means and how it impacts things. We hope to have more info to present to you soon!”
