Dear Green American ,
If you thought that one way to cut GMOs from your diet was to avoid foods with high-risk GMO ingredients, you may need to think again.
Meat and dairy products, while not genetically modified themselves, are not immune to the insidious impacts of GMOs. In fact, your favorite yogurt brand may be made with milk from cows that are fed GMO feed 2-3 times per day.
Chobani, the top US Greek yogurt brand, takes pride in adding no GM ingredients directly to its yogurt, and yet sources its primary ingredient – milk – from cows most likely eating loads of GMOs. Not only are GMOs bad for livestock that eat them, but these GMOs pass on to the meat and dairy products ultimately consumed by humans.
Chobani said on Facebook that they are carefully monitoring its customers' concerns about GMOs, so now is the time to speak up! We hope you will join us in sending a message to Chobani to shift to non-GMO feed for their cows, to help accelerate the shift to a non GMO food system! You can also call them at (877) 847-6181 to voice your concerns.
For non-GMO dairy and meat options, you can look for the Non-GMO Project seal or check out this list of brands >>
