Isn't it sickening that Panera advertises that their food has few chemicals?

GMO Free USA (info@gmofreeusa.org)
To:you Details

Hello!
We didn't do any testing for GMOs in this study. It focused solely on glyphosate. Because of glyphosate's acceptance on GMO food crops, it's use was widely expanded to the desiccation, or drying down of grains, beans sugar cane and other crops before harvest.
As for potential GMOs - Panera does not claim to eliminate or avoid GMOs. There are many ingredients in Panera's baked goods, soups, pasta dishes and salad dressings that are high risk for GMO. Ingredients to watch out for... sugar, corn starch, soybean oil, canola oil, ascorbic acid, soy lecithin and more. It is also likely that any dairy would be from cows fed GMO feed unless it is clearly labeled as organic.

I don't know what the full story is regarding Panera, but if their claims are misleading, absolutely, that is disgusting.
I see so many misleading ads on TV that I often mute during ads.
With each new regulation enacted, manufacturers find new wording and ways around it.
We need stronger penalties. If they make more than they're penalized for a lie, there's no incentive.
For example: Let's say they fine some company 50 million bucks for something. That sounds like a lot. It's not if they made 100 million. They're still ahead by 50 mil.
They need to be fined so much for knowingly breaking the law that one or two fines will bankrupt them.
