ConAgra Foods Statement on Microwave Popcorn

Posted on

ConAgra Foods would like Dr. Oz viewers to know that Orville Redenbacher’s and Act II popcorn is safe and can be part of a healthful diet. Orville Redenbacher’s and ACT II popcorn, despite the implication, contain 0 grams trans fat, have no added diacetyl and no PFOAs.  We began removing trans fats from our microwave popcorn nearly a decade ago, and we were among the first popcorn makers to remove added diacetyl from all microwave popcorn products in 2007. Additionally, ConAgra Foods transitioned to non-PFOA materials in microwave popcorn packaging six years ago. Because the segment on microwave popcorn didn’t convey these facts, we wanted to reassure viewers that Orville Redenbacher’s and ACT II popcorn are safe and wholesome to enjoy.
