Ok, there was a thread about this earlier this year, however this is confirmation direct from the company!
Also, the prvious thread has had its youtube videos removed from Youtube (wierd eh?
) here it is if you wanna check it out: www.abovetopsecret.com...

They will NOT label the corn as GE/GMO and you should know that this is the first GM food that Monsanto has created that goes directly from the farm to the consumer, instad of being processed and used as ingredients in other products! Lucky us! We get direct BT toxin straight from the fields!


Monsanto GE Sweet Corn to Hit Walmart Shelves
From EcoWatch.org

Like it or not, Monsanto’s genetically modified sweet corn will soon be arriving on grocery store shelves of the world’s largest retailer, Walmart Stores, Inc., and will not be labeled as such. Despite an onslaught of consumer pressure, the company confirmed late last week with the Chicago Tribune that it has no objection to selling the new crop of Monsanto’s genetically modified (GE) sweet corn.

Other retailers, including the grocery chains Safeway and Kroger, have not responded on the issue, however Whole Foods, Trader Joes and General Mills have all vowed to not carry or use the GE sweet corn. As the country’s largest grocery retailer, Walmart sells $129 billion worth of food a year, giving it unmatched power in shaping the food supply chain.


One side, its good to see soome retailers NOT going with this death corn, however a large portion of the population buys most of their food from Walmart now.. sad



The GE sweet corn is the first consumer product developed by Monsanto that will go straight from the farm to the consumer’s plate, rather than first being processed into animal feed, sugars, oils, fibers and other ingredients found in a wide variety of conventional food. It is engineered to be resistant to Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, the active ingredient of which is glyphosate. The product is also designed to produce a Bt toxin that will kill insects that feed on the plant. Monsanto’s new sweet corn is being harvested in the Midwest, Northwest, Southeast and Texas.

“After closely looking at both sides of the debate and collaborating with a number of respected food safety experts, we see no scientifically validated safety reasons to implement restrictions on this product,” Walmart officials told the Tribune.


So there ya go folks! DO NOT BUY the 'Sweet Corn' you will see in Walmart stores soon! Well, unless you enjoy the taste and possible health issues associated with BT toxin and GM foods. Did you know that more evidence has come out that 3rd and 4th generation of hamsters eating GM foods have become sterile!?!?!
source

Russian biologists have found that hamsters fed a GMO soybean diet to become infertile after three generations. Reported recently in the Huffington Post, this dramatically concerning discovery raises a lot more questions about the malignant and rapidly expanding genetically modified organisms already known to cause a variety of health problems like allergies, cancer, and auto-immune diseases just to name a few


As a side not, the original article was from the Chicago Tribune HOWEVER, the article has disappeared from their website (Weird, no?!) Doing due diligence i did a search on the Tribune website,
- Obivoulsy from a 'Cache' because when you click the link, it is '404'ed'.. of course. It would not suprise me that they (they being Monsanto) had the article removed.. why would they want everyone to know that you are going to be eating GM foods direct from the fields?!! UGH!
I have tried to contact the Chicago Tribune to ask what happened to the article and if I could please have a copy of it, I'm not getting my hopes up, but if they for some miraculous reason send it to me, I will post it. I also wanted to know if this was only the US (sorry American friends
) or if this is also going to be in Walmart stores in Canada and elsewhere! If i get an answer i will add it to the thread.

My warrning - So, please please folks.. Tell your friends! Tell your Family! Sit infront of Walmart and tell your fellow citizen! Unless you potentially want BT toxin in YOUR blood (ATS thread), in YOUR system, DO NOT BUY/EAT IT! If you go to a BBQ, rememebr to ask where they got the corn from!

These GM foods are severly undertested, have evidence that they cause many different health issues and are ruining the lives of farmers around the world! Monsanto is EVIL!!

Check out some of the many, many, related Monsanto threads at the bottom and PLEASE FRIENDS, spread the word!!!!!!

Warnings are not needed for Walmart shoppers. Does anyone think they have standards?

Exactly.
Good catch Monsanto labelling, and the 404'd screen grab. The more ways this is told, the better.

Altho why WHY do people shop at walmart?? Have they not devastated enough communities and local economies enough yet?!
They advertise lost leaders, same as everywhere else - we are all led to think their prices are all cheaper, but they're not.

While I understand why some shop at Walmart for groceries, you could not pay me enough to buy my groceries from there. How many times have they had recalls on MEAT?

I already assumed ALL GMO's were sold at Walmart.
Who else would really take them into their stores?

I assume the markets that sell Aspartame sweeteners and HFCS everything probably have a good amount of GMO's as well. Frankenfoods have been around for years, so who is selling them to the public? Big chain stores I'd assume, like Walmart, Stop N Shop, Shaw's, and whatever other chain markets exist.

Simple. Dont eat corn.

Corn lacks any real nutritional value


Corn is low in saturated fat and cholesterol, as well as sodium. It's also a good source of dietary fiber, thiamin and folate. However, 82 percent of the calories in this food are from carbohydrates. This high-carbohydrate content is why corn can be used to make corn syrup a low-priced sugar alternative

Coupled with being hard to digest, its seems simple to me not to eat it. Dont get me wrong, its tastes great, especially when done on the BBQ.

Corn startch is a filler.....at the end of the day it will just make you fat. Eat other assorted fruits, vegetables and meats. Crisis averted

Once you start growing a 3rd arm from eatting the GM Corn, I would advise you to stop.


"hey that guy has a 3rd arm, he must shop at walmart"

The main concern here is the bottom line for these companies.

Walmart needs low costs and large quantities to make its business model work. Monsanto is the same in dealing with Walmart. Use GE crops to produce greater yeilds to lower costs and move more volume.

They make quite a romatic couple.
They share so many interests. World Domination and Money

GMO's will be around for a long time... until they negatively effect someone "important", and all of us here do not fall into that category. I would even venture to say the Obama's do not fall into that either. I'm talking about rich white old wealth bloodline folks.

When GMO's start retarding the Rockefellers & Rothschilds grand kids, then we might see them pulled... except in poor communities.

I don't touch Walmart. I think their produce is horrible. The only thing i've ever bought there has been charcoal for my grill.

I hit the local farmer's markets for produce and Costco for everything else.

Agreed! However, the GM crops actually don't have higher yields!!

Two places you never buy food:

- Wal Mart
- Dollar Stores

Note, i am not concerned about the NYC hot dog vendors and their toilet water, or the burritos you can buy out of someone's trunk here in West Texas. At least with bacteria I have a fighting chance.

I mean, have you actually looked at what passes for meat there? The meat looks like sewer drain covers. Atrocious produce, horrible cheeses. It is disgusting quality food, even if it has a national label. Wal Mart is big enough for national brands to reformulate a specific product that meets Wal Marts pricing standards, and is still profitable for them.

I shop at HEB. It is Texas based/owned, and does all its charity in Texas.

I personally am lucky to have the options not to shop there for food, however have family/friends in other places who do not have such a flexible option. So, had reminded them to research the brands and Wal Mart food sources they buy at the store. Also, that I believe it was the Documentary, Food Inc., that said some Wal Marts had started selling Non GMO option due to community demand. There's an opportunity if a must for shopping in your local, pull together to let them know what people want.
Also, I found that for those who don't shop for food at Wal-Mart but have to access food banks; some Wal-Marts donate to them so be weary of the corn.

Where I live they are the only chain that only sells pre-packaged meats. No thanks, I still got stores with fresh cuts, not to mention real produce. Besides I don't think their prices are all that great anyway.

Well here in my neck of the woods Walmart caters to unwed welfare and very poor consumers taking into consideration that we rank 3 in the most obese states in nation, you can pretty much deduce what kind of food people buys in Walmart knowingly or unknowingly.

Personally I have not purchase anything in walmart in the last 2 years.

Good luck with all those Walmart shoppers that think Walmart is the best thing since apple pie.
