|Diana Reeves, Founder GMO Free USA|
On July 23rd, GMO Free USA kicked off their first campaign against Kelloggs. Thousands of people have been bombarding Kelloggs with phone calls, e-mails, tweets and Facebook posts. I personally spoke with a customer service representative who listened carefully and took notes on our entire conversation. Kelloggs has sent a response to some members of GMO Free USA with the following content:
This is what I would like to say to Kelloggs:
"Dear Consumer Affairs Specialist,
Thank you for being so respectful in your response, but get GMOs out of your food NOW. Our campaign will not stop until you do. If you are serious about providing "healthy, nutritious, and safe food" as you say, then you would begin removing GMOs from your products immediately. The debate over GMOs goes way beyond the fear that GMO foods represent a type of 'biological' pollution" as you say, but rather that GMOs are slowly poisoning the America people and are causing a whole host of diseases and health problems such as immunological disorders, gastrointestinal disease, infertility, and cancer to name a few. The FDA, who is supposedly protecting the American people, has allowed GMOs into the food supply without any proof that GMOs are safe, yet Kelloggs allows GMOs into your food despite your statement that you "take seriously the trust placed" in Kelloggs. Well, I am sorry to inform you that Kelloggs no longer has my trust. Kelloggs has the chance to be a leader and gain back the trust of the America people. Remove GMOs from all your products just like you have done in Europe and announce to the world that Kelloggs cares about the well-being of the American people.
Protective Mom of Three Children"
Diana Reeves is feeling great about how the Kelloggs campaign is going and had this to say: "
SIGN the petition telling Kelloggs to go GMO free. GMO Free USA needs your support. Things will never change unless we use our voices and let them be heard. Jeffrey Smith, the country's leading spokesperson on the dangers of GMOs calls this the Tipping Point, we in GMO Free USA can create that tipping point. GMO Free USA has 7000 members right now and is growing by the second, but the truth is, we should stand millions strong against the industry that is destroying everything in it's path.
Thank YOU Diana for bringing all of us together and for your vision and perseverance to make things happen!
