Consumer Reports is clearing up confusion on food packaging. 

They said many food labels are unclear and not all products meet the same standard.

"Consumers should really look for "no antibiotics ever" and then a seal to accompany it which could be USDA processed verified or another one is USDA organic" said Charlotte Vallaeys, with Consumer Reports. 

Consumer Reports said to watch out for packaging claiming 'natural' or 'all natural' because it isn't regulated by a government agency.
