Kraft Uses Hormones

Kraft admits to using milk from cows supplemented with genetically modified growth hormones in its products.

Food company Kraft, manufacturer of products such as Chips Ahoy!, Oreo, Ritz, and Newtons, has admitted to using milk from recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH)-supplemented cows. These are genetically modified hormones that were developed by Monsanto. Americans have been unknowingly consuming such hormones in dairy products for more than a decade, since GMO products do not need a specific label. Cows are injected with the growth hormone, which increases milk production. Currently, the entire European Union, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia have made rBGH use illegal in milk for human consumption.
