Glyphosate-tainted burgers? Impossible Foods rebuffs Moms Across America’s latest anti-GMO campaign

| | May 21, 2019

“Moms Across America” has escalated a year-long campaign against Impossible Foods to push its anti-vaccine, anti-GMO agenda to anyone gullible enough to listen. The group’s latest salvo is a pathetic “news release” full of lies, anti-science rhetoric and ignorance of basic arithmetic.

[Editor’s note: Moms Across America alleged that the plant-based Impossible burger contains ‘highly dangerous’ levels of the weed killer glyphosate. Impossible Foods CEO Rachel Conrad responds. Impossible Foods has published a longer response to MAA’s claims as well.]

It’s sad, but perhaps not surprising, that MAA keeps trying to trash Impossible Foods. MAA’s goal is to eliminate genetic engineering, as well as the vaccines and insulin made using GE technology — while pushing quack products via its marketing and e-commerce site and affiliates. By contrast, Impossible Foods’ goal is to transform the global food system, improve public health and preserve biodiversity — with an approach rooted in science, consumer choice and transparency.
