California Almond Growers Informative - Almonds Mislabeled As Raw
Since last year, the California almond growers have been using propylene oxide, fumigant, and very dangerous chemical to process all almonds and yet they still label them raw! This is an outrageous public deception! And criminal.. They have literally ruined a most nutritious nut, the almond, to extend shelf life. Also they use pasturization process.
For those of us who are vegetarians and depend on nuts as a vital source of protien, this mislabeling is an outrage..The FDA is allowing them to get away with it. The only source of truly raw almonds, is to buy from independent farmers.
Please join forces to stop this labeling deception.
