Walmart To Sell Unlabeled GMO Corn From Monsanto

At prices this low, how could you expect the food not to be laced with insecticide? Russia Today reports:

America’s largest bio-agriculture company and the biggest retailer in the country are joining forces. Walmart will soon be stocking their shelves with GMO corn made by Monsanto.

The retail giant says they won’t advertise which of their products are made with genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, which could become a big problem very soon. Zack Kaldveer explains in an editorial published by the California Progress Report this month that Walmart will soon sell a special factory-made corn manufactured by Monsanto, which while it will allow most of Americans more easy access to affordable food, will also fill them with unknown insecticides: the very GMO crop Walmart will be selling has been genetically engineered to include chemicals right inside the corn.

Voters in California will decide later this year if retailers on the West Coast will be legally bound to correctly label all foodstuffs sold in shopping centers that are made from genetically modified foods. Monsanto, one of the biggest biotech companies in the world, isn’t that okay with efforts to pass the bill, though. They have so far donated hundreds of millions of dollars towards a campaign established to stop the bill, No on 37.

    You get what you pay for! And in this case, it’s untold damage to your body. But hey at least they’re only hurting the poor!

      I’d be worried if this were your first reason

    You can’t destroy the walmart. Its bargains are too powerful.

    It’s really kind of a moot point, since it is GMO corn that is in high-fructose corn syrup. And the typical Walmart shopper is not the kind of person who goes out of their way to avoid the stuff.

    Walmart solves the riddle of where the Morlock originated.

  • TedHeistman

    Well, where else are they gonna sell it? If you shop at Walmart you get what you deserve Karma is a biatch!

    • Terry

      Hey MORON!!!  Look up the definition of KARMA!   You can probably find a book in Walmart on your daily trip!

     All food should be labeled and the public told of any thing like insecticide or any other thing that has been put into any food. I thought labels of ingredients and any other additive was suppose to be on the label. we should know of any thing that is or has been injected or otherwise put on or in our food

    Will it name a farm? Will it have a brand?

    I happened to be inside a Wal-Mart the other day and had a look at the “corn”, It was pale yellowish with browny spots and there were flies all buzzing around it! Not joking at all. Not sure if it was Monsanto’s corn or not, (how would one know?) but I like to think that it was.
