Thank you, General Mills, for removing the GMOs from original Cheerios!

There's great news to start 2014.

There’s no more GMOs in "original" Cheerios!

This is all due to the constant pressure that GMO Insiders kept on the company for one year.

On a page posted on the Cheerios website at the beginning of the year, the company states: “It’s the unique and simple nature of original Cheerios that made this possible – and even that required significant investment over nearly a year.”  It also says “we were able to change how we source and handle ingredients to ensure that the corn starch for original Cheerios comes only from non-GMO corn, and our sugar is only non-GMO pure cane sugar.”

This is thanks to all of you who took our actions throughout the last year - calling, e-mailing, posting on Facebook, and participating in our Cheerios "Send Back Attack." Cheerios’ Facebook page has been awash in concerns around GMOs for months, and over 37,000 people wrote to the company to ask for no more GMOs in Cheerios.

Please take a moment to thank General Mills for its first step in taking the GMOs out of original Cheerios, and as a next step, ask General Mills to get Cheerios 3rd party verified. General Mills listened to YOU. Please let them know you appreciate it.
