The deception of the general public by this company is reprehensible. It is not contained solely in its false and misleading statements regarding nutritional facts.

One which is what the consumer is looking for, such as Sara Lee never uses materials from outside the United States. If the same person were to call right back and tell the operator they are from the media this question would either be answered truthfully ( yes they buy on the open market and there is no guarantee that the materials they are buying is solely from the United States) or they will be transferred to management. I challenge you to call with this question.
