    We must now be considered another injured party. We have two large containers of Wesson Canola Oil in the kitchen cupboard. We have been using this product for years as part of our NATURAL healthy nutrition plan. We are angry to discover that Wesson products are derived from genetically modified crops.

    I am hoping this case gooes against Wesson because there is need for precedent as it pertains to GM foods/ingredients. Basically ANY processed food with ANY ingredient derived from soybeans, canola, or corn (that aren’t organic) will contain GMOs. Soooo many foods in this category are wrongly labeled “natural” — blatantly not the case.
