Join Organic Consumers Association and the GE-Free Markets Coalition on Wednesday, October 16th and call on Supermarkets to go GE-Free

Let's build up the pressure on supermarket CEOs to do the right thing and remove untested, unwanted genetically engineered ingredients from their store brands!

Join us in the "Call For True Food."

On Wednesday, October 16th, leading up to our "National Week of Action," Oct. 26 -- Nov. 2, people across the country will be calling their supermarkets to demand an end to the use of genetically engineered food in supermarket store brand products. By calling on Oct. 16th, we can keep the pressure on while we prepare for what promises to be the largest "Week of Action" yet for the supermarket campaign.

It only takes 5 minutes and together we can generate thousands of phone calls. Here are the phone numbers of the supermarkets that are currently targeted  by OCA and the GE-Free Markets Coalition:

  • Shaw's/ Star Markets 1-888-431-7429

  • Safeway (They own Vons, Pavilions, Genuardi's, Randall's, Tom Thumb, Dominicks's, Carr's, Eagle Quality Center and Pak N' Save.) 1-800-723-3929

  • Food Emporium 1-800-837-9237

  • Publix 1-800-242-1227

  • Food Lion 1-800-210-9569

What do I say when I call?

Let the operator know that you are a concerned shopper. You are calling because you want the supermarket to stop its use of genetically engineered ingredients in their store brand products just as Whole Foods, Wild Oats and Trader Joe's have done.
