If the USDA approves a new GE potato (which could soon happen), McDonald's has the power to make or break this engineered spud's success. Thanks to their famous fries, McDonald's is the single largest purchaser of potatoes in the United States. That's why

McDonald's: Say no to genetically engineered potatoes

Dear McDonald's,

I don't want to eat McFrankenfries - but if you buy genetically engineered (GE) potatoes for your restaurants, that's exactly what we'll get!

GE foods are unlabeled, inadequately tested, and potentially unsafe. The USDA may soon approve a new GE potato from biotech company J.R. Simplot. As the largest potato purchaser in the United States, I urge you to commit not to buy this GE potato. I don't want my fries to be genetically engineered!

Sincerely,

Signed and noted. Thanks for sharing, Kathy. Genetically modified foods are taking over, it seems.
