Safeway has its own line of private-label organic products - O Organics™ - for one reason: the giant grocery chain wants a piece of the growing market for organic foods. But before you purchase an O Organics product, remember this: Safeway is a dues-paying member of the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), which donated $2 million to defeat GMO labeling in California, and is so far, the largest donor to the campaign to defeat GMO labeling in Washington State.

I'm not certain that this would send a message that what they are doing is wrong Buying organics does support the message to change. Actually buying more organic and less non organic would make a bigger statement.

Safeway needs to be called out on their despicable GMA membership. They are intentionally confusing the issue by selling organic foods. Gladly signed and noted, thanks, Nancy.

Safeway in Canada has just been bought by Sobey's, who also bought Thrifty's; it's definitely shrinking our choices of grocery chains. I try to buy more locally but have gone to Safeway to get bonus Air Miles. I didn't realize their O brand wasn't certified organic. Now I know. Thank you.

Because of this and several other less-than-savory tactics, I've switched my general shopping to a nearby Fred Meyers store, even if it's not as convenient.

Well, I can still collect air miles at Safeway, I just won't buy their produce anymore.

I've never touched an O Organics product and now I really won't, despite the fact that I'm surrounded by Safeways here. Thanks!

In my research on the internet (which is often wrong) GMOs spread like germs through wind, water, whatever. They're in our vegetarian burgers, etc. Check it out for yourself. I'd love to be mistaken.

When I first saw O Organics on the supermarket shelf, I was delighted. This chain store product appeared to provide the type of product I was looking for, at a price lower than the standard organics sell for. Guess I just learned why! Thanks for the info, Nancy!
