WASHINGTON — General Mills Inc. spent $260,000 in the second quarter to lobby on food safety, ethanol, trade, school lunch issues and other matters, according to a recent disclosure report.
Besides Congress, the Golden Valley, Minn.-based food maker lobbied the Department of Agriculture and trade officials during the April-June period, according to the report filed July 20 with the House clerk's office.
Erika Lee Baum, former special assistant at the Labor Department, was among those lobbying on the company's behalf.
