Remember when Whole Foods promised consumers that by the end of 2018, all of its U.S. and Canada stores would require labels on any foods containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs)?
About midway through 2018, Whole Foods reneged on that promise.
Now the retailer, once known as a mecca for organic food shoppers, is selling GMO potatoes—and those potatoes aren’t labeled.
Non-organic potatoes are so contaminated, that even the farmers who grow them won’t eat them. They have separate plots where they grow potatoes, without all the chemicals, for themselves.
Whole Foods shouldn’t sell any potatoes that aren’t certified organic—but GMO potatoes? Without labels?
