That the word "Natural" has absolutely no meaning when used on a product label, and, in fact, whatever is in the package may be everything BUT natural.

Peeling Back the 'Natural' Food Label
Companies can slap that magic word on processed food packages even if what’s inside contains artificial ingredients. If you find that outrageous, now’s the time to join us in letting the FDA know how you feel.

Do you ever buy one brand of cereal, chips, or juice over another because you see “natural” on the label and assume it’s better? Sure you do, and you have plenty of company. A recent nationally representative Consumer Reports survey (PDF) of 1,005 adults found that more than half of consumers usually seek out products with a "natural" food label, often in the false belief that they’re produced without genetically modified organisms, hormones, pesticides, or artificial ingredients.

In fact, for processed foods, that term has no clear meaning and is not regulated by any agency. That’s why we petitioned (PDF) the Food and Drug Administration in 2014 to ban the use of “natural” on labeling so thatshoppers aren’t misled. (We have also asked the Department of Agriculture to ban the use of “natural” onmeat and poultry because it is currently not well-defined or meaningful.)

...
“The use of the word ‘natural’ is a deceptive marketing ploy to reel in unaware consumers. People are led to believe it is the same as ‘organic,’ which it surely is not,” wrote one Florida resident.

Consumer Reports’ food-safety experts agree; in fact, we have long argued that consumers should not be duped by “natural” labels that currently aren’t backed by meaningful standards.

Here's one from when I worked in Customer Service: Customer service reps have mute buttons, and they use it to laugh at you and/or call you names while you're busy complaining.
