What You Need to Know About GMOs and the GMA
The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA)â€”Monsantoâ€™s Evil Twinâ€”is pulling out all the stops to keep you in the dark about whatâ€™s in your food. The GMA plans to sue in federal court to overturn Vermontâ€™s new GMO labeling law, H.112. And itâ€™s pushing a bill in Congress that would not only overturn every stateâ€™s right to enact a GMO labeling law, but also legalize the practice of labeling GMO foods â€œnatural.â€� Take the pledge today to boycott the 300-plus members of the GMA, including the Traitor Brands! Your message will be sent to the 12 Traitor Brand companies listed Monsanto, Dow, Dupont, Kelloggâ€™s, General Mills, Coca-Cola. These are just a few of the 300-plus members of the GMA. Combined, they own more than 6,000 brand name products, including foods, beverages, seeds, home and garden supplies, pet food, herbicides and pesticides. You probably donâ€™t buy most of those products. But you may not be aware that many of your favorite organic and natural brands, like Honest Tea, Muir Glen, Odwalla, Kashi, Earthgrains, Santa Cruz and others, are owned by corporations that do belong to the GMA. Those corporations spent about $68 million just to defeat GMO ballot initiatives in California (Prop 37) and Washington State (I-522). And they continue to fight against your right to know by supporting the GMAâ€™s latest efforts to overturn statesâ€™ rights to pass GMO labeling laws. Who are the Traitor Brands? Here are the worst culprits, their parent companies, and the amount they spent just to defeat Prop 37 and I-522: PepsiCo ($4.8M) - IZZE, Naked Juice, Simply Frito-Lay, Starbucks Frappucino Coca-Cola ($3.2M) - Honest Tea, Odwalla, Keurig/Green Mountain Coffee (10%) Nestle ($3M) - Gerber Organic, Sweet Leaf tea Kraft/Mondelez ($2.4M) - Boca Burgers, Green and Black's General Mills ($2.1M) - Cascadian Farm, Larabar, Muir Glen ConAgra Foods ($2M) - Alexia, Pam organic cooking sprays Kelloggs ($1.1M) - Bear Naked, Gardenburger, Kashi, Morningstar Farms Campbells ($980k) - Plum Organics, Wolfgang Puck organic soups Smuckers ($900k) - R.W. Knudsen, Santa Cruz organic, Smuckers Organic Hershey's ($880k) - Dagoba Bimbo Bakeries ($560k) - Earthgrains bread McCormick ($400k) - Simply Asia, Thai Kitchen These companies are gobbling up organic and â€œnaturalâ€� brands because they recognize the huge profit potential in the fast-growing organic and natural markets. They want our business. If we stop buying their brands, they know thereâ€™s a good chance weâ€™ll find alternative brands. And we might never look back. Our motto for Monsanto and GMA products must become: Donâ€™t buy them. Donâ€™t sell them. Donâ€™t grow them. And donâ€™t let your financial institution, university, church, labor union or pension fund invest in them.
