今年四月,Chipotle對外宣布店內食品均不含任何基改食品原料成分,引發各方關注或獲得許多掌聲。

然而就在本週一(8/31),一家律師事務所於聯邦法院提起集體訴訟,指控Chipotle的公開宣示是誤導和欺騙消費者,因為它仍然販售許多基改生物製成的食品,例如肉類或乳製品是來自食用基改飼料的牲畜,而飲料也仍使用基改玉米糖漿。

  • Chipotle發言人認為不能因為牲畜吃了基改飼料就將其肉品或乳製品視為基改原料。

    而事實上,Chipotle早在它的官網也明確承認在肉品、乳製品及飲料上有許多需要加強與克服之處:

    But it is important to note that most animal feed in the U.S. is genetically modified, which means that the meat and dairy served at Chipotle are likely to come from animals given at least some GMO feed. We are working hard on this challenge, and have made substantial progress: for example, the 100% grass-fed beef served in many Chipotle restaurants was not fed GMO grain—or any grain, for that matter.

    Many of the beverages sold in our restaurants contain genetically modified ingredients, including those containing high fructose corn syrup, which is almost always made from GMO corn.

    消費者該怎麼理解這件事呢?或許只能靜待官司的進展。
