    This is the wrong attitude: gene splicing and manipulation ideally need to be proven safe to be sold, not proven harmful when/if it causes problems.

      This is disgusting. It is amazing how much sway marketing tactics have over people.

        I'm not terribly afraid of a couple of ears of locally grown old fashioned sweet corn when it's in season.
        You're in O'town so you probably know that it's not hard to find good local smaller farm old fashioned stuff like "silver queen" and such when the time is right.
        Organic and Non-GMO.

        Not something to eat all the time for sure.
        But a nice nostalgic treat for once or maybe twice in a nice and short 'prime' season.

        I can't believe anyone, besides Monsanto, would argue that GMO's are harmless...
        I'm not a fan of Walmart either.

        And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

          Monsanto IS truly the devil's bitch!

Personally I shop at Kroger a lot which I find cheaper and the quality is way better. I've also heard that Walmart does funny things with their meats. Like adding some chemicals to preserve it longer or whatever.
            I have heard good things about Kroger and I think I have one near me. I'm new to the area so I'm gonna look it up...thanks!

              I shop at Walmart for Motor oil, and drain cleaners. Sometimes a scented candle if I am in the mood. Nothing else in there warrants my attention.
