(NaturalNews) UPDATE: The story which originally appeared here is now irrelevant and has been replaced with this groundbreaking, history-making announcement:
I’m thrilled today to be able to announcing a groundbreaking “industry accord” agreement which will have dramatic, positive ramifications for the future of brown rice protein products sold in the USA and around the world.
Over the last 24 hours, we have diligently worked with Garden of Life and Sunwarrior to reach this pioneering, unprecedented industry agreement. Garden of Life founder Jordan Rubin also worked alongside myself and others in finding the best possible resolution for everyone involved (especially consumers).
Both of these companies understood the concerns we raised regarding the levels of lead, cadmium and tungsten which our forensic food lab identified in their products. They have responded in a commendable, positive manner that I personally am very happy to see because the commitments both companies have now made will have far-reaching, hugely positive implications for all their customers for years to come.
“Mr. Adams’ testing highlighted for us the importance of our commitment to support organic practices at the farm-level,” said Garden of Life Vice President of Science Jeffrey Brams. He continued to explain that this conversation “deepened our resolve to know each of our farmers personally, supporting them with the best practices, providing long term contracts with stable pricing and requiring them to adhere to the highest fair farming standards. Raw Protein is, remains and always has been safe,” Brams explains (see his full statement at the end of this article).
