  • What does a "natural" label mean to you?

  • I would say that a natural label means

  • that there are fewer chemicals.

  • I would say natural means basically organic.

  • I would buy a product that had a natural label,

  • as opposed to one that didn't.

  • It says natural cheese.

  • What do you think that means?

  • That's what's scary.

  • I don't know what that means.

  • Does natural mean no GMOs, or I don't know.

  • Who knows?

  • In spite of the fact that many people assume

  • that foods carrying this label are somehow better for you,

  • the word natural on processed food labels is meaningless.

  • Processed foods labeled natural can contain

  • GMOs, artificial ingredients, and can be

  • produced with toxic pesticides.

  • That is why Consumer Reports wants the Food and Drug

  • Administration to either ban the label,

  • or define it so it meets consumer expectations.

  • I think it's very confusing for most people

  • as to what is the difference between natural and organic.

  • If they refuse to ban the term, for processed foods,

  • the natural label should mean organic,

  • no artificial ingredient, and be verified.

  • Companies put the word natural on their labels

  • because they know it will sell.

  • I think they do it so that people buy it.

  • They want to like fool us into buying something

  • that's not necessarily good.

  • Let's stop being misled.

  • Sign our petition calling on the FDA to either ban the natural

  • label or define it meaningfully, at ConsumersUnion.org/natural.

  • Thank you for your support.
