Whole Foods Knowingly Engages in Massive GMO Deception, says Undercover Video by 'Organic Spies'

Whole Foods deceives consumers into unknowingly buying GMOs while financially supporting a GMO supply chain that ultimately enriches Monsanto, charges an explosive new undercover sting video released by Organic Spies. (Link below.)

The video features secret camera footage from a dozen Whole Foods stores in the Los Angeles area, capturing Whole Foods employees lying on camera about the genetically engineered ingredients found in products sold at Whole Foods.

"It's against our policy to carry anything that's grown with GMOs in it," says one employee, caught on camera.

But according to Organic Spies, anywhere from 20% - 30% of Whole Foods products contain GMOs. See the full video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oR9H7NgOLBQ

When asked whether Whole Foods products contain GMOs, another employee says, "Absolutely not. Because the bottom line for all Whole Foods is no preservatives, no additives, no added growth hormones, no GMOs, absolutely, that's for everything."

This statement is, of course, patently absurd. Even I've noticed all kinds of additives and preservatives in products sold at Whole Foods. And GMOs are found throughout the store, including in many so-called "natural" products that are actually made with GM corn. In fact, Natural News just revealed a list of the top 10 breakfast cereals most likely to contain GMOs... and some of them are sold at Whole Foods.

"Whole Foods has mastered the art of bait and switch" According to the undercover video, Whole Foods has "mastered the art of bait and switch" by advertising their foods as organic and non-GMO, then inundating customers with foods labeled "natural" which actually contain genetically engineered ingredients and pesticide residues.

"Genetically engineered foods are everywhere..." says the video. "In the salad bar, packaged foods, meats and dairy products. Even the Whole Foods branded vitamin line may contain GMOs."

The video openly accuses Whole Foods of "deceptive marketing" and says the company knowingly "trains employees to tell customers that they do not sell any GMO food."
