If you are shopping for Simple Truth and Wild Harvest be sure you are buying food with organic written on the label. There is a MAJOR difference between the two labels. Foods marked as natural are not regulated. This means that they can contain pesticides and GMO ingredients in them. This can be quite tricky when you are shopping, so always look for the label.
