Oh Deby- Don't consume anything from Grimmway Farms. Everything on your list is a chemical with toxic effects. I am a chemist and if I knew the crops were being treated with all of these chemicals I would never put them in my mouth. They say it is safe and approved-Hah!, so are aspartame and msg. We are sick because these chemicals are being sprayed on our food and the soil being treated with them! Grimmway Farms is just the tip of the iceberg. Our society is headed for disaster, just like the Titanic.
Organic is the only thing I can eat...and I use organic with caution and read every label. Maybe we all need to do as you have done and get the growers to tell us what they are using on the crops. What an expose this would make on 60 Minutes or Dateline!

Deby - Great job in getting this info. Thank you!

I think you should notice they mentione*non-organic* carrots. I re-wrote them today and asked about their *organic* carrots so we will see what they say.
I wish we had a place here where we could compile a list of safe produce companies,name brand safe foods(extensive list) etc...it is so hard when you are starting out.

Wow! Want some carrot with your "crop protectants"? Their Newspeak just kills me.

Great comment Carol...Thanks for the laugh!

I will ask Mike if he will add the topic of "safe foods and products" to the others. Good idea, Deby. We could also add a bad product topic. That's what this board is all about....sharing and caring.

Grimmway Farms called me yesterday...hmmm?
Anyways, the man told me about their ORGANIC carrots, nothing with Auxi-gro.....they do not use it. They use nothing that is hydrolized....just natural fertilizers...he was very nice and I referred him to this site, for his own health's sake. I am so new at this, I am not sure if I am asking the right questions, or sound even like I know what I am talking about. Scary..
