Organic fraud confirmed [again]

An industry rife with misinformation, grifting credulous consumers

I didn’t expect to be writing a piece today. It’s a long weekend in the US, and I was going to kick back and relax after heading out to Neighborhood Produce to buy some food. But then I thought: other people might be on their way out to make some purchases for the holiday too — grilling up some veggies, and making some salads….And they should remember that organic grifting and misinformation is a major problem. Save your money for legitimate good causes. Organic food is not one of them.
