CDC: Kellogg's cereal source of 31-state salmonella outbreak | 15 June 2018 | The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said a salmonella outbreak that's sickened 73 people in 31 states is linked to Kellogg's Honey Smacks [GMO/pesticide-laden] cereal. The CDC said from March 3 to May 28 the outbreak sent 24 people to the hospital, most in California, Massachusetts, New York and Pennsylvania. No deaths have been reported. The Kellogg Company announced Thursday it is recalling 15.3-ounce and 23-ounce packages of the cereal with "best if used by" dates between June 14, 2018, and June 14, 2019. [See also: Kellogg's Cereals: Double Dose of GMO Pesticides and Antibiotics --Kellogg's Cereals loaded with pesticides, GMOs 03 Nov 2014 There is a good reason that Kellogg's spent over $1,012,552 on media propaganda in California and Washington to defeat voter ballot initiatives that would have required the labeling of GMO foods, and now are contributing again to the defeat of labeling initiatives in Oregon (contributing $250,000). A consumer recently sent a box of Froot Loops to a lab for genetic testing and found that the corn and soy used in the cereal are 100% RoundUp Ready GMO. So is the sugar. Never mind the other toxic ingredients in the cereal. This means that in one box of Kellogg’s cereal (and likely all their cereals contain similar GMO products), you are dining on a double dose of glyphosate and Bt toxins - glyphosate being patented as an 'antibiotic' by Monsanto in 2011.]

So sick of the sociopaths: Two Democratic senators move to prevent Trump from removing US troops in South Korea | 13 June 2018 | A pair of Senate DemocRATs introduced a bill Wednesday that would prevent President Donald Trump from unilaterally drawing down the American troop presence on the Korean peninsula.
