Mutant Corn Backlash

November 2, 2011

Monsanto is set to flood the food supply with GMO sweet corn next year, and retailers and consumers are standing up to the biotech giant.

Over a quarter of a million people have already signed petitions urging markets and food companies not to use the latest strain of mutant corn.

“The overwhelming number of people who have signed this petition once again reiterates the fact that consumers don’t want genetically engineered food on their plates,” said Wenonah Hauter, Executive Director of Food & Water Watch. “Consumers should be outraged that as early as next year, GE sweet corn in cans, frozen and fresh off the cob could show up in grocery stores across the country and we will have no way of telling it apart from other corn.”

A cover letter, from the Center for Food Safety, explains that we the people. do not support GMOs in our food supply.
