This is going to be the end of organics. I am livid, and I cannot think of anything else to write. This is just evil.

I signed a few days ago. This is all so ridiculous. These companies have nothing but their own financial gain in mind. Some might say "well, what company doesn't?" but I think that to actually step out there and be even semi-supportive of GMOs when you are supposed to be about organics is just totally appalling. So much for integrity.

I signed, but I am also confused. So now organic foods will even have GMO in it?  I am also pretty pissed b/c I thought WF was supposed to not sell anything GMO, that's what they tell me every single time I ask.
