Back to OCA's Truth-in-Labeling Campaign for OK District 5

Get Monsanto Out of Trader Joe's!

Trader Joe's is 80% GMO-free. All of their store-brand products are sourced from non-genetically-modified ingredients, and Trader-Joe's-brand products are 80% of what they carry.

But Trader Joe's definitely sells foods that contain GMO ingredients. For example, Trader Joe's sells products by:

* Morningstar Farms, which admits that all but one of their products (the Breakfast Patties Made with Organic Soy) contain genetically modified organisms.

* Tofutti, which uses non-GMO soy protein, but admits that other ingredients, like the partially hydrogenated soybean oil (trans fat) in their Better Than Cream Cheese, are genetically modified.

Ask Trader Joe's to go from 80% to 100% GMO-free. In the meantime, demand that they respect consumers' right to know what's in our food by labeling any food that may contain ingredients made with genetically engineered organisms, including ingredients from animals raised on genetically engineered feed.
