Traces of herbicide found in Ben & Jerry’s ice cream
CHICAGO — Ben & Jerry’s is under fire after a key ingredient in herbicides was found in samples of its ice cream.
According to the Organic Consumers Association, 10 out of 11 samples of the Vermont-based ice cream had traces of glyphosate.
Now, the association is calling for organic and natural food stores to dump Ben & Jerry’s products unless the company goes organic.
Ben & Jerry’s said the glyphosate found in the ice cream probably comes from add-ins like peanut butter and cookie dough.
