Genetically engineered foods at major supermarket chains

Leaflet your local supermarket

Lab tests and industry disclosures indicate that 60-75% of all non-organic Supermarket foods now "test positive" for the presence of GE ingredients. Despite growing public concern over the safety of milk and dairy products from cows injected with recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH), as well as human health and environmental concerns over GE corn, soy, canola, and cotton, the U.S. government refuses to require safety-testing or labeling for GE foods. Uncertain, unpredictable, and untestable.

Scientists warn that GE foods may set off allergies, increase cancer risks, produce antibiotic-resistant pathogens, damage food quality, and produce dangerous toxins. Environmental hazards of genetically engineered crops include: increased use of toxic pesticides, damage to soil fertility, genetic pollution of adjoining farmlands, harm to Monarch butterfliesand beneficial insects such as ladybugs, and the creation of "superpests, "superweeds," and virulent new plant viruses.

Without warning or notice you have been included in a dangerous experiment!


Most supermarket chains have their own store brands, which are made to their specifications. If Stores like Safeway and Shaw's choose to, they can stop using GE ingredients. Three national chains in the U.S., Trader Joe's, Whole Foods and Wild Oats have already committed to removing GE ingredients from their store brand products.
