I was one of the unlucky people who received a groupon for Newfoundland Food Distributors for their "Organic" beef. I have to say it is the worst meat I have ever come across in my life. Not only was it so poorly cut, it was frozen in cheap plastic bags prone to getting holes. The meat itself is tough, flavourless and completely disgusting in all regards. A few pieces were so bad they resembled pork in colour. Disgusted. Luckily after much struggle Groupon issued a refund.

Emily, people should be wary of the term "natural". It isn't regulated so anything can be claimed to be natural, even if it contains GMO. In the US, only Organic is verified and regulated.

mainlander- i think we agree on what i said; falsely claiming "natural" is the problem.

Finally! An article that starts to explain what is going on with our food. Most processed foods contain genetically modified ingredients. It's not labelled and you wouldn't know unless you were aware that most corn and soy crops grown in the US are GMO. For example, if you consume something with high fructose corn syrup, caramel colour or soy lecithin as an ingredient and it is not labelled 100% organic, you are eating GMO. Even our meats are impacted as grain fed usually means GMO corn & soy feed. Buy 100% grass fed, with no hormones or antibiotics used. Do your research. Start by Googling Monsanto & the California Ballot initiative. You will be shocked to learn what you have been eating and what doesn't need to be labelled.

the title on this article should read "buyer beware on food that claims to be natural", the current title "buyer beware on natural food" makes it seem that there is something questionable about natural food which is misleading and contrary to the subject of the article..
