All Products Containing Genetically Modified Ingredients Will Need to Be Labeled As Such
Honolulu, HI (March 11, 2013) – Down to Earth Organic & Natural today announced it will begin requiring any products with ingredients containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) to be labeled as such by 2018. The decision follows a similar announcement by Whole Foods this past Friday.
"Whole Foods' announcement is a game changer," says Mark Fergusson, Down to Earth Chief Organic Officer. "It marks a big victory in the move towards the labeling of genetically modified foods. Down to Earth will monitor and review the situation and may move our implementation date earlier if that becomes possible."
