Boycott Kellogg’s Monsanto-Made Frankenfoods!

If you recently joined Organic Consumers Association’s Kellogg’s boycott, you probably received this letter from Christina, their “Consumer Specialist”:

Thank you for your comments regarding the use of biotechnology ingredients. Like you, we want only the best ingredients to go into our products.

Biotech ingredients are safe and have become common in the open market. Sixty to seventy percent of packaged foods in the U.S. include biotechnology crops. Even organic ingredients can contain biotech ingredients due to cross-pollination.

We use biotech ingredients based on the backing of groups including the World Health Organization, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, and the American Medical Association that confirm there are no safety concerns.

You have placed trust in us to provide healthy, nutritious, and safe food. We will continue to evaluate our ingredients, suppliers and product formulas to give you the best products possible. Please be assured your concerns will be shared with our nutritionist and food developers here at Kellogg.

Sincerely,

Christina Calleros
Consumer Specialist
Consumer Affairs, Kellogg’s

Please take a moment to write to Calleros. Tell her that genetically engineered foods are not safe! Scientists reviewing Monsanto’s own studies “have proven that genetically engineered foods are neither sufficiently healthy or proper to be commercialized.” Genetically engineered crops and foods damage animal and human health, require vast amounts of toxic and climate-destabilizing herbicides and chemical fertilizers, generate superweeds that require deadly herbicides like 2,4-D for eradication, and spread genetic pollution into adjoining crops and plant relatives. Let her know that organic consumers don’t appreciate Kellogg’s “so-what” attitude toward the genetic contamination of organic crops! The Supreme Court recently ruled that the potential of genetically engineered crops to pollute organic varieties is a reason to hold back Monsanto’s Frankencrops – not promote them!
