So a company on it's own decides to do the right thing, while no others do, and you want to pressure them into further expense and work to do this in 2 years instead of 5! Thank you whole foods for giving a hoot about you patrons!
I would love to sign this petition, because I totally resonate with this cause...
but.... why are you guys working so hard to Make all GMO's and foods from Monsanto illegal to grow or sell... in the USA?
I mean... why ONLY in the USA?
Because you know that Monsanto operates freely in my Country -México- and in so many others, so... why contaminating other lands, people, soils, ecosystems with GMO?
I am sick of being pushed around and lied to constantly by rich a--holes who only care about the profits they can make. We never had to worry so much when the food we ate was grown in this country. I agree with Rick C Moore because it is up to us to buy and eat what is good for us. Read labels and decide who you really want to support. Peace
As dedicated Whole Foods shopper this would be a real help to me and others who are trying to avoid consuming and using GMO foods and products. The Good Earth in Fairfax, CA (Marin County) is doing this year. I and a lot of folks will be shopping at Co-ops and small health stores that will be adopting these practices. Whole Foods should not be waiting, this is an extreme market advantage, not to speak of it the right thing to do!
It's clear that no matter what Whole Foods does or how far they go in their efforts to change the face of supermarkets all over the world for the better, they will never be doing enough for you people. This corporation is part of the reason most of you people have any awareness of the terrible things that are being put into our food in the first place. You have no idea what it takes to research each and every ingredient that each and every product contains all the way back to the seed that...

This corporation is part of the reason most of you people have any awareness of the terrible things that are being put into our food in the first place. You have no idea what it takes to research each and every ingredient that each and every product contains all the way back to the seed that grew it. To do this for millions of products and then demand that those vendors spend money and put their necks out to label their products, most likely taking a substantial hit in sales, is no easy thing to do. If you think this could be accomplished in two years (one person said 'one month') you live in LA-LA-LAND and should come back to reality. How about appreciating and supporting a company that puts so much money and effort into something as game changing as this instead of continuing what I see all the time... Calling it out as not good enough, as if they haven't changed the world already.
A French study done with rats, who were given GMO food for 90 days showed the rats were growing tumors as big as a third of their bodies.
Please revise this petition to require non-GMO and GMO labeling NOW, this year 2013! ASAP and I would like to see all stores follow this labeling responsibility example.
Vive Philosophia - In my country if Whole Foods Market to Label... people will be starved... because under the Communist regime to rule a nation: let them eat less, even the bad food, and forcing them to work hard! But I sign the petition because I Have A Dream of Freedom for Vietnam, Tibet….
Please visit: I have a dream of freedom of Vietnam (Volume 1) (Vietnamese Edition) by Nguyen Quang.
I think GMO's are especially bad... people who are allergic to seafood and have to take insulin shots can't eat some tomatos because they splice jellyfish genes in tomatos. they need to be labelled!
