Vermont Maple laws say requires that any product claiming to be a natural product to use real maple syrup maple. According to WCAX News, agriculture officials contacted McDonald’s to inform the company no longer use “maple” in the name of oatmeal.
“We contacted McDonald’s that, they are consistent with the product, because we want to do the right thing, they’re changing the ingredients and labeling, and we hope they do,” said Vt former Agriculture Secretary Roger Allbee. “We’ll give them 60 to 90 days, certainly that is appropriate.
The fast food giant responded to WCAX News with the following statement: “McDonald’s Fruit & Oatmeal contains maple oatmeal, diced apples, cranberries, raisins, cream and a proprietary blend of natural flavors of McDonald’s is currently in talks with the State of Vermont. Ensure that we meet all national standards. “
