In 2015, the World Health Organization's Internal Research on Cancer said that glyphosate is "probably carcinogenic to humans".
A number of foods that contained amounts of glyphosate higher than those suggested by EWG included products made by General Mills, including Cheerios, Lucky Charms and Nature Valley Products.
The report comes days after Monsanto was ordered to award $289 million to a terminally ill man who claimed that excessive exposure and use of Roundup caused his non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. And a recent major study, published by researchers at the National Institutes of Health, "observed no associations between glyphosate use and overall cancer risk".
"I was shocked", said Dr. Jennifer Lowry, who heads the Council on Environmental Health for the American Academy of Pediatrics and is a toxicologist at Children's Mercy Kansas City.
The herbicide was also found in smaller concentrations in five samples of organic oat products. "The EPA has researched this issue and has set rules that we follow".
We expect better from General Mills and Quaker Oats, and we will continue to urge consumers to express their preference with their pocketbooks.

The World Health Organization calls glyphosate a probable carcinogen.
"The challenge here is that the story seems pretty clear: Glyphosate is bad, and it is in a lot of food products", says Tim Calkins, clinical professor of marketing at Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management.
Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup, an herbicide used to treat Roundup Ready corn and soy plants that have been genetically engineered to resist the chemical.
"Simply stated, there is far too much glyphosate in their products for parents to feel comfortable feeding them to their kids", the group continued in its statement.
"If you look at the study some of the organic cereals also had elevated levels of glyphosates present and it's not because the organic farmers have sprayed the glyphosate".
U.S. farmers spray about 200m pounds of Roundup each year on their crops, including corn, soybeans, wheat and oats. The lowest level, 10 parts per billion, came from a sample of Whole Foods conventional rolled oats scooped from a bulk bin.
"Any levels of glyphosate that may remain are significantly below any regulatory limits and well within compliance of the safety standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) as safe for human consumption".
"Plaintiffs are putting forward junk science that is not based upon the 40 years of safe glyphosate use and studies", Scott Partridge, Monsanto's vice president of global strategy, told Reuters. "And depending on weather patterns it could drift into their farms and get onto their foods", she said.
