    I think that is appalling. Presumably they will be selling it in Asda, UK too?

    The perfect partnership.

    Monsanto buys politicians so that, unlike most civilized countries, its poisons don't have to be labelled in the US.

    Walmart keeps its female employees just under full-time so that it doesn't have to pay them benefits. Selling GMO corn fits their corporate (lack of) conscience just swimmingly.

    You gotta admit, they're all keeping it consistent: killing people, one consumer at a time.

    I doubt it since the EU is so strict on GM foods. I'd also like to see some research that GM foods are harmful, or even better that this particular strain is.

    Problem is that GM foods are too new to have much long term research. And when the French rat study came out, Monsanto just shrugged its mighty shoulders. I read somewhere that other countries want to wait to see what GMOs do to American children in the next 10 years before making a decision.

    It's pink slime. It's bgh. It's GMOs. I don't care if people want to eat what I consider garbage. I just want it labelled. If you stand behind your product, why not be proud to have it listed as an ingredient? Think of the marketing:

    Pink slime: We've recycled what used to be dog food with harsh chemicals to make people food!

    BGH: Don't worry, there's hardly any pus in your milk, and look how cheap it is!

    GMOs: We're not sure, but you're poor and expendable!

    Rich or poor, we are all getting the GMOs. It sickens me.

    I'm sure you could google this and find plenty on it. They aren't meant for human consumption and they GM so they have resistance to the poisonous pesticides sprayed on them.

    Just gives me one more reason to not shop at Mal-wart. Not that I needed one - I don't shop there anyway and the biggest reason is the nearest one is ghetto.

    In 2010, I probably spent about $5,000-$7000 at Walmart. For 2012, using averaging, I'll probaby spend less than $500. I'm at the point where I have to be out of just about every non-food item in the house to make a trip there worth it. And it's close. It's just not a great experience.

    The food isn't interesting. Half the time the produce is dull and old looking. I guess the best thing I can say about it is that they sell cheap paper plates and toilet tissue.
