this brand DOES not have any GMO foods, duh, look up the USDA code of conduct. Silly Silly Silly. O'well...
It is exciting that this issue has been surfacing as a big issue these days..
Liars come in all shapes and forms but we've known about Monsanto "raping" farmers and consumers for quite a few years, but guess who has the most money to by their own lies? Ugh. More of the same---money and politics,

I used to buy Smucker's products because of the quality - although I always thought that they could have used a better name. Now I realize that I would be a schmuck to continue to support them. Today it is unfortunate that we have to spend so much time researching before we can take a bite of anything.
The submissive response is to surrender and eat any of the crap these companies produce. The cynical response is to claim that, in this day and age, most politicians, sport stars, entertainment celebrities, and so on, are seldom as personable or as honest as promoted. Why would food be any different? It's no secret that slapping food product packaging with the proclamation that it's ORGANIC (given the somewhat lax or at least not strictly enforced FDA guidelines for that) is really just a...

Why would food be any different? It's no secret that slapping food product packaging with the proclamation that it's ORGANIC (given the somewhat lax or at least not strictly enforced FDA guidelines for that) is really just a ploy for dollars. O$G$N$C. Then, when a company seems to have confirmed it is "organic", but is really a cheat, well, that just supports the whole conclusion that the system is corrupt and few can be trusted. Santa Cruz, an "organic" company, hobknobbing with Monsanto. Gee, that's what they call a RED FLAG. That's like discovering that an idealistic, untainted animal rights group has been meeting for strategy marketing with the Pork Growers of America.
One answer: drastically reduce the purchase of products from major producers. Make your own. It's gratifying, it's usually more healthful, on balance it's usually cheaper, and for those reasons it's good revenge. As far as it's practical, I'll walk an extra mile to save a dollar on the crap at the standard neighborhood grocery store so I can buy something that meets quality standards at my food co-op.
Choice= the power and voice of the consumer. Choose wisely.
Right on Rachel ! :) Probably the most power of people/the masses dealing with all corporations,companies,governments... ect... They will make only produce what they can sell... The addiction to things "we want" and do not need is biggest trouble to getting us all to do The right thing...Smartest thing for our healthiest survival .... CHOICE=POWER ! :) like
Human beings were never designed to be experimental guina pigs, we have a threshold that when we expose our bodies to chemical/or organisms the result is disease/and or cancer....stop screwing with our food!
Stop poisoning us for Monsanto's profits!
Smuckers is not a company I trust.
Why are they trying to poison us? NO CONSUMERS = NO MARKETS.
Sure, but if consumers are lulled into believing the hype they hand out, they will continue to buy the products. We won't ALL be dead, and as long as there is someone, somewhere to buy, they don't care.
We're all going to be genetically-modified organisms (GMO), as the corporations do as they please - with us as their lab rats... sad state of affairs in the U.$.A.
I think there's a film called " The Monsanto Story". Sure u watched it already, what did you think of it? Good doc ?
I prefer to do my own recipes!
If by that, you mean 'grow your own' ---- then you better start looking into 'heirloom seeds' (BEFORE all this crap started) REAL SOON!
