Fireworks May Not Pack the Only July 4th Surprise

Washington, D.C. – June 29, 2012 – As millions of Americans prepare for July 4th picnics and barbecues with family and friends, Just Label It, the national coalition for genetically engineered (GE) food labeling, urged Washington to stop keeping our citizens in the dark, and require labeling for GE foods.

“This July 4th and all summer long, American families will gather our children and grandchildren around picnic and dinner tables without knowing about the food they’re serving,” JLI Chairman Gary Hirshberg said. “As we celebrate the anniversary of our nation’s freedom, the stark reality is that American families don’t have the information or the freedom to know about the food they eat, which places the United States far behind 50 other nations.” Countries such as Japan, all of Europe, and China already have GE foods labeling.

KASHI Brand Pulled Off Green Grocers Shelf, Here Is Why

The San Diego-based cereal maker Kashi is a topic of discussion among consumers this week after a blogger on the Green It All website pointed out that some of its products contain genetically-modified ingredients.
That information isn’t news to people in the natural-foods industry, but it’s just now making the rounds of social media, inspiring 171 comments on Kashi’s Facebook page this week. Earlier this year, most of the company’s products were pulled off at least one grocery store’s shelves. And for the past two years, San Diego-based natural grocer Jimbo’s hasn’t accepted new Kashi products because of concerns about GMOs, or genetically modified organisms.
