Please consider boycotting the following Health Food brands for funneling money into the campaign to defeat a California food labeling initiative, Proposition 37, on the ballot in November. They don’t want us to know what is in their food (largely because of their links with the GMO industry), or any other food, for that matter. Personally, I’d like to have the choice whether or not to buy GMO products, so I’d like them to be labeled. If their food is safe, what’s the problem?
* Kashi (owned by Kellogg, which has contributed $632,000 to defeat Proposition 37). Kashi’s so-called “natural” breakfast cereals have tested positive for the presence of GMOs. Kellogg also owns the “natural” brands Bear Naked and Morningstar Farms.
* Silk soymilk (owned by the nation’s largest dairy, Dean Foods, which has contributed $253,000 to the effort to kill Proposition 37). Dean Foods also owns White Wave Tofu and Horizon milk and dairy products.
* R.W. Knudsen (owned by Smucker, which has contributed $388,000 to defeat proposition 37). Smucker also owns Santa Cruz Organic.
* Cascadian Farm (owned by General Mills, which has contributed $520,000 to defeat proposition 37). General Mills also owns Larabar and Muir Glen.
* Honest Tea (owned by Coca-Cola which has contributed $1,164,400 to defeat Proposition 37). Coca-Cola also owns Odwalla.
* Naked Juice (owned by PepsiCo which has contributed $1,716,300 to defeat Proposition 37). PepsiCo also owns Tostito’s Organic and Tropicana Organic.
* “O” Organics (Safeway’s private label line of organic foods). Safeway, like other “No on 37” companies, is a dues-paying member of the Grocery Manufacturers Association, which has contributed $375,000 to defeat Prop 37.
