Mislabeling can cause a whole lot of issues and it turns out Quaker Oats has been doing just that! They have done everything within their power to make their labels misleading.

In states like California and New York customers have even gone as far as to file lawsuits against this company based on the fact that it turns out this oatmeal contains traces of the pesticide glyphosate.

An independent lab in California researched this brand and did tests on its one-minute oatmeal product. Researchers used liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry, which is a procedure used in chemical labs on drug research and etc. They were able to determine that traces of glyphosate were actually in the product while it was found in lower amounts than considered legal the company is still being sued for false advertising since they claim their products are one hundred percent natural which is one hundred percent not true.
