rint" in product labels, even for USDA-labeled "100% Natural," minimally-processed foods like chicken.
  • 85.9% of consumers surveyed did not realize that a serving of some brands' fresh, raw chicken could contain more salt per serving than a large order of french fries. (Some brands of plumped chicken can contain 440 mg of sodium, versus 350 mg of sodium in a large order of french fries from a national fast food chain.)
