Ronnie Cummins of the Organic Consumers Association has been protesting
Whole Foods for several years, demanding the company label the GMOs it
sells. Whole Foods management has foolishly ignored him.
until recently his efforts achieved relatively little traction, but all
of a sudden "he appears to be a prophet," a friend told me yesterday.
Yep, Ronnie Cummins was right, and the fact that Whole Foods has sternly resisted labeling the GMOs it sells has the company in a virtual P.R. panic.
Why? Because Whole Foods CEO John Mackey confirmed in a blog post three days ago that Whole Foods knowingly sells Monsanto GM corn
in numerous products. And yet at the same time Whole Foods refuses to
make its day-to-day shoppers aware of this horrifying fact. He says:
YouTube video showing our store Team Members giving conflicting
responses to a question about GMOs reminds us that while we try to keep
all our 70,000 Team Members up-to-speed on the latest information,
clearly we need to do more. Some products in our stores DO contain
As a result, masses of Whole Foods customers and even
employees are operating under the illusion that Whole Foods sells no
products containing genetically engineered ingredients. This was
confirmed by the recent Organic Spies video which was censored by YouTube because it dared to tell the truth about Whole Foods.
