New Campaign Targets Popcorn Companies’ Use of Bee-Toxic Insecticide

WASHINGTON - Center for Food Safety today launched a new campaign asking Pop Secret and Pop Weaver, two of the largest popcorn companies in the country, to source their popcorn from seeds that are free of neonicotinoid insecticides. Corn seeds are routinely coated in neonicotinoids even if there is no pest problem present; consumers are asking the popcorn companies to stop this practice in their supply chain in order to protect bees and other important pollinators.
