Deception: Major tortilla chip brand using ‘No GMO’ label on contaminated product (Natural News, Dec 22, 2014):

The nonprofit consumer advocacy group Consumer Reports has released a new report on genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) that warns of inadvertent deception and possible outright fraud in non-GMO claims that aren’t certified by independent third parties such as the NON-GMO Project.

The popular tortilla chip brand “Xochitl Totopos de Maiz,” according to the report, is actively selling tortilla chips all across America that bear a “No GMO” label, but that contain high amounts of GM corn. Tests conducted on six separate lots of the product revealed 75 percent or more GM corn content, despite labels to the contrary.
