GMO corn at Walmart

(article, Culinate staff)

At times, it seems like you can't get away from the GMO corn thing. The latest: the campaign to convince Walmart not to carry Monsanto's new GMO sweet corn when it hits markets this summer. 

Many grocery chains, including Trader Joe's, have promised not to carry the corn. But, as the Just Label It campaign has made clear, you won't have any way of knowing whether that ordinary sweet corn is genetically modified or not, since GM foods aren't currently required to be labeled as such.

Of course, the new corn has a label of its own: Enlist. Suggestive, no?
