Join Us: This Saturday is GE-Free Action Day at Walmart!By Ali Geering-Kline
Walmart is behind the curve on GMOs. While Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods have responded to CEH’s surveys asking for their policy on Monsanto risky new, pesticide-laden corn, Walmart has ignored our direct questions about the Monsanto corn (check out the details in press release: Pressure on Walmart to Rebuff GE Sweet Corn Intensifies).
In order to raise awareness about the problems associated with genetically engineered foods and encourage Walmart to agree not to sell Monsanto’s GE sweet corn, we’re taking our message to their front door.
Californians: Live in the Bay Area, Silicon Valley, or Los Angeles/Ventura County area? Then come out to the nearest Walmart (store action list below) to help us send the message that we don’t want Monsanto’s untested, unlabeled GE sweet corn anywhere near our grocery stores!
