Genetically Engineered Foods To Be Labeled At Whole Foods

Good for Whole Foods:
"Accordingly, we have set a deadline that, by 2018, all products in our U.S. and Canadian stores must be labeled to indicate whether they contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Whole Foods Market is the first national grocery chain to set a deadline for full GMO transparency."
Now if only they'd stop using canola oil for every item in their food bar. One day I saw something made with lard, and I nearly fell over. They've not repeated the mistake, sadly. I agree with Joel Salatin; it's much better to do this without getting the ham-handed, corrupt regulators involved.
