Breaking news: McDonalds says no to the GE potato

A couple of days back we blogged that a GE potato has been approved in the US – and now McDonalds have said they won’t buy it.

McDonalds US to their credit also said they won’t buy the GE apple which is being developed here in BC.

While in the end we need adequate regulation and testing of any new products, retail campaigns can keep these items off the shelf in the short term.

You can help us stop the GE apple by going to your local grocery store and getting them to commit to not selling it – go to https://gefreebc.wordpress.com/apple/ for details of what to tell your store and a letter they can sign.
