Now that the truth has come out, you cannot continue to keep consumers in the dark about the GMO’s sold in your stores. Even though you claim to support Proposition 37, the California ballot initiative to label genetically engineered foods, your "endorsement" contains misleading information that reads straight from the opposition’s playbook and you refuse to donate even a single dollar to support the measure. We ask that you take immediate action to honestly label all GMOs present in your stores and commit to financially supporting Prop. 37 so that other grocers must also ensure that people can make educated, healthy decisions about the foods they buy.

Whole Foods Market claims to be "America's Healthiest Grocery Store." However, Organic Spies recently conducted an undercover hidden camera investigation of Whole Foods that told quite a different story. The video exposes that the "organic grocer" sells a massive amount of unlabeled GMOs at its stores, including many products containing Monsanto's GM corn - the same strain of genetically engineered corn that French researchers recently linked to massive cancer tumors in rats. Worse still, the grocer's employees are caught on film blatantly lying to consumers, claiming Whole Foods sells no GMOs at all.
Adding fuel to the fire, as soon as the Organic Spies' video began to go viral online, YouTube censored it (most likely due to complaints from Whole Foods itself).
You can still watch the full video on TV.naturalnews.com.
Whole Foods has also officially responded to the incriminating hidden camera footage by admitting that they do sell GMOs in their stores. Still, many of their employees remain completely unaware of this. As Whole Foods states in its blog:
"The YouTube video showing our store Team Members giving conflicting responses to a question about GMOs reminds us that while we try to keep all our 70,000 Team Members up-to-speed on the latest information, clearly we need to do more. Some products in our stores DO contain GMOs -- just like any other food store in the country, due to the pervasiveness of GMOs..."
