Linda disagrees with the score for General Mills Crispy Kix Cereal (18 oz).
Linda feels that the score should be F (0-9).
The reason is: From what I can see and I am still learning, but the main ingredients are ALL GMO ingredients, not to mention corn syrup which has been proven to be harmful to health. To me if the top 5 ingredients have all shown to do harm than this product should have a negative score.

Unfortunately, the FDA does not require manufacturers to disclose whether their products or ingredients include Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO). Therefore, it is not possible for us to indicate whether a product is or is not GMO, because there are no consistent guidelines or standards. The best way to ensure that a product is or isn’t GMO is by contacting the manufacturer directly. Hopefully, more transparent GMO labeling will be required in the future so that consumers can make their own informed decisions about their food. At that time, you can be sure that foodfacts.com will indicate the GMO status of a product, but for now, that information simply isn’t available if the manufacturer does not want to provide it.

As always, thanks for contacting us!
