It came as no surprise that a company like General Mills donated $1.2 million to defeat Proposition 37, the California Right to Know ballot initiative to label genetically modified organisms (GMOs). But many consumers were surprised to learn that General

Muir Glen is a favorite brand of mine. I'm crushed...but I don't know if the crushed tomatoes are gmo!!!

We must also remember to boycott Whole Foods for not only funding anti-labeling groups, but also for funding climate-change denial groups.

It feels like a betrayal of the worst kind, doesn't it? Signed with no small amount of aggravation with GM

Signed and tweeted - I guess it's back to growing our own foods or buying just from the direct area farmers.

Thank you for taking action! We need to know the truth.

I don't get it.
I use to buy kashi unsweetened puffs.
It has a non-gmo label on it...so if it doesn't have a label,I would assume it's gmo.
signed earlier
thanks Nancy

I think Cheerios tastes like cardboard! I kind of like their "heart-healthy" ads with little kids interacting with family. But their latest is a slinky gimmick designed to make eating Cheerios look sexy! It's so disgusting I wouldn't buy them, even if I liked the taste. Using sex to sell cereal - just goes to show you how desperate they are!

I've been boycotting Muir Glen, Cascadian Farms and any other General Mills-owned products since before the CA GMO ballot measure. I hope the voters in WA and VT won't get fooled this time and will vote to ban GMO's! Signed and noted, thanks, Nancy!

Signed. This just gives me even more reason to move to the country and grow my own tomatoes etc.! Who can we trust anymore? It is sad that you cant rely on your own government to make sure your not eating contaminated foods or foods that are not GMOs. I say changes need to be made at the FDA since no one is protecting us there!

GMO is just nasty business but business is more concerned with their bottom line than about health. Strange how they don't want the public to know things while in Europe it is law to label GMO!

Larabar, Cascadian Farms, Muir Glen -- I will boycott some, though this is not the total answer. There needs to be a better way to stop these gmo's and ge's!
