Wal-Mart To Be Investigated for Organic Swapping.

January 30, 2007

As I mentioned the other day, Wal-Mart might have been exposed for labeling and selling non-organic foods as organic. Well, now the USDA is getting involved and it looks like they are going to investigate the fact that Wal-Mart sells products with the word organic on the sign…that are not organic. See anything weird about these pictures?

Yep, they are labeled as organic….with big signs and everything…but they are not organic. Thanks Wal-Mart, for doing exactly what we knew you would do: Lower organic standards to save the company money. However, we didn’t know you would just change the labels out to do so! So sneaky and clever!
