Tell Walmart: Just Say No to GMO Corn!By Ali Geering-Kline
Monsanto’s new experimental GMO corn contains a toxic pesticide in every bite, intended for the frozen and/or canned corn market. This experimental corn will not be labeled, so consumers cannot know when they may be eating a GMO food. As the nation’s largest retailer and a major provider of frozen and canned corn, Walmart has the responsibility to take action to protect consumers from this risky new corn.
More than 300,000 Americans have already signed a petition urging Walmart to make a commitment to reject the new Monsanto GMO variety by April 1. Petitions will be delivered to Walmart this week, so take action today to have your voice heard!Tags: genetically modified, GMO Corn, Monsanto, OLD: Pesticides, Walmart
