The Untouchables: Why You Can’t Sue General Mills Tags: Big Corp fascism globalist agenda GMO food natural health Orwellian world

Are your Lucky Charms less than magically delicious?  Are your Cheerios less than cheery?  Perhaps you broke off a tooth when there was something extra crunchy in your Cinnamon Toast Crunch or became totally ill from something totally disgusting in your bowl of Total.  If so, I hope you didn’t “like” them on Facebook.

General Mills has taken “CYA” (Cover Your A**) to an entirely new level.

If you “like” one of their products on Facebook or download coupons from them, their new terms of use state that you can no longer take them to court for any reason. Here is the new clause, straight from the horses…ahem…mouth.

ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM MADE BY YOU AGAINST GENERAL MILLS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR YOUR PURCHASE OR USE OF ANY GENERAL MILLS SERVICE OR PRODUCT (INCLUDING GENERAL MILLS PRODUCTS PURCHASED AT ONLINE OR PHYSICAL STORES FOR PERSONAL OR HOUSEHOLD USE) REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DISPUTE OR CLAIM IS BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STATUTE, FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY (TOGETHER, A “DISPUTE”) WILL BE RESOLVED BY INFORMAL NEGOTIATIONS OR THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION, AS DESCRIBED BELOW.

Informal negotiations
To expedite resolution and control the cost of a Dispute, you and General Mills agree to first attempt to resolve a Dispute informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating any arbitration.  Such informal negotiations will commence upon written notice from one party to the other.  You must send your notice tolegal.terms@genmills.com.  Please include in the subject line of the email “Request to Negotiate.”

 

Arbitration procedures
If you and General Mills are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, either you or General Mills may elect to have a Dispute resolved by binding arbitration by notifying the other party of such election.  Either party also may choose to seek relief in a small claims court for a Dispute within the scope of its jurisdiction, instead of arbitration.  To make this election, the small claims court action must be commenced before either party notifies the other of an election to arbitrate the Dispute, but after the conclusion of the informal negotiation period described above.  If neither party has validly commenced a small claims court action for a Dispute, any election to arbitrate the Dispute by one party will immediately become final and binding on the other.

You and General Mills agree to waive the right to litigate any Dispute in court (except in small claims court in the limited circumstances described above) and before a jury and agree that this arbitration provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act to the maximum extent permitted by law.  (source)

General Mills is a huge purveyor of artificial food-like substances.  The clause above covers not only Cheerios, but gastronomical delights from the likes of Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, Green Giant, Yoplait, Nature Valley, Old El Paso, Progresso, Hamburger Helper, Toaster Strudel Gold Medal, Bisquick, Totino’s, Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms, Kix, Trix, Cocoa Puffs, Total, Wheaties, Fiber One,  and Chex, to name a few. You can find the complete list of newly untouchable brands right HERE.

So what does this mean?

If you get sick from eating any of these products, they are fully protected in the courts. If you find someone’s severed finger in your box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, you can’t sue them, even if you already ate half the box. If you find that your box of Lucky Charms is extra lucky and contains a dead bug, you aren’t so lucky because you can’t take them to court.  If you eat their cereals every day for five years and get a dreaded disease directly traceable to them, they get to say, “Hey, you ‘liked’ us on Facebook .  Sorry about your luck.”

Effective Immediately: France Bans All GMO Cultivation

Tags: Activism GMO food Monsanto take action

Activist Post

The French National Assembly has made a sweeping declaration with a new bill, effective immediately. No more genetically modified crops.

On Tuesday, the French lower house of parliament adopted a law immediately banning cultivation of any GMO corn, due to environmental safety concerns.

Recently, they also made a halt decree to prohibit planting the only GM crop allowed in the EU – Monsanto’s MON810 corn, with built-in insect resistance.

Jean-Marie Le Guen, the minister in charge of relations with parliament, said:

It is essential today to renew a widely shared desire to maintain the French ban. This bill strengthens the decree passed last March by preventing the immediate cultivation of GMO and extending their reach to all transgenic maize varieties.

 

Farmers and seed companies are challenging the rule, as they have blocked similar decrees before, viewing safety concerns insufficient. But Le Guen bound the rule so that member state decisions could not be litigated against.

The ban heads back to the Senate for final approval – if rejected, the French National Assembly gets to cast the final ruling. Future strains will be banned even if the EU states approve more.

Of course big biotech companies are not satisfied to let bans rest. If companies like Monsanto have any say, they’ll be back. The EU actually wants to give them that final say.

Additionally, DuPont and Dow Chemical are poised to crash the EU again, if allowed. They already jointly developed Pioneer 1507 GM corn and most of the member states did not gather enough votes to block it.

German Company Is 3D Printing Food for the Elderly Tags: 3D Pinter Food Biozoon seneoPro

By John Biggs, TechCrunch – April 9, 2014

http://tinyurl.com/mhwobyh

A German company, Biozoon, is working on a 3D-printed food extruder that creates food that literally melts in your mouth, allowing elderly patients with dysphagia – the inability to swallow – to eat without choking.

Biozoon uses molecular gastronomy to create food that can be “printed” using a standard extruder-based printer. The food solidifies and is completely edible but when it’s eaten it quickly dissolves in the mouth. Over 60% of older patients have problems swallowing. This could save lives by ensuring they don’t aspirate food crumbs into their lungs.

The product itself can be molded and extruded in different ways and you can add colorants and texturizers to make things look and taste almost like the real thing.

According to the website:

The powder mixtures of seneoPro series enable universal implementation so that both family caregivers and professional cooks and nurses can easily make the new diets. Appetizers, main dishes, desserts and snacks can now custom fit, balanced and also be made ​​visually appealing above all things. A food with all your senses, pleasure and enjoyment is possible again, a structured daily functioning can be restored.

The product, called seneoPro, will be available for use in 3D printers this year. It is true “customized” food and it’s a fascinating use of the technology.

[Here’s a further, edited translation from the Biozoon website SiNeh~]

The seneoPro® – texturizer is a smooth food concept, which was designed by the renowned home chefs Markus Biedermann and Herbert Thill.

It allows a new type of diet for people with chewing and swallowing difficulties, who can not tolerate normal food.

The four different texturizers enable the implementation of so-called diets to which airy or stable foams include gels or thickened liquids. An adapted and balanced diet are possible as is increasing the quality of life.
