One of our employees bought a case of oranges yesterday from the box store wholesale chain, Costco, in a Montreal-area store this weekend. On the box, it said that they were treated to maintain freshness with one or more of the following:
Suspected carcinogen and neurotoxicant
Suspected carcinogen, neurotoxicant, immunotoxicant, developmental toxicant, skin or sense organ toxicant.
Why would a company selling nutritious products knowingly spray them with a carcinogen and other highly suspect chemicals? Hopefully we’ll get some answers as both Costco and Sunkist have been contacted. We’ll keep you posted with their response or lack thereof.
