Kids' Cereal Fortified With GMO Ingredients Stirs the Bowl With Enraged Parents

General Mills has left thousands of comments critical of Cheerios and GMOs on its Facebook page. Many comments are from parents who are concerned about the fact that they have been feeding Cheerios to their children (“So sorry that the food my kids loved as toddlers is one I can't support anymore. I can't believe that General Mills has the well-being of its customers in mind when it contributes to movement against labeling of GMOs.”) However, General Mills has not posted to the Cheerios’ Facebook page in over a week (from 11/29 - 12/5), deviating from its norm of posting every two days.

"It appears that General Mills is trying to make sure its fans do not come to the Cheerios Facebook page and see an outpouring of concern about the product," said Todd Larsen, Green America Corporate Responsibility Programs Director. "At GMO Inside’s Facebook page, people can see which ingredients in Cheerios and other products are likely to be genetically modified. Cheerios needs to label or remove the GMO ingredients. Consumers have a right to know."
