Genetic Engineering and Frito-Lay

 

PLEASE SPREAD THIS FAR AND WIDE:

FRITOS-LAY of Dallas, Texas has announced it would no longer use genetically engineered corn in its products. THIS IS THE START OF SOMETHING BIG. But the biotech giants have started their own campaign to encourage Fritos to reverse their decision. If Fritos holds to their commitment, this may very well be the start of the downfall of genetically engineered foods in America.

FRITOS IS CAREFULLY WATCHING THE CONSUMER RESPONSE.

PLEASE send them an email consumer.affairs@fritolay.com
or call them 1-800-352-4477 (ask for operator 100)

 

Tell them you applaud their decision.
Tell them that you do NOT want to eat foods that have been genetically engineered to act as an insecticide.
