Please rephrase that. I don't understand your question.
The YouTube video showing our store Team Members giving conflicting responses to a question about GMOs reminds us that while we try to keep all our 70,000 Team Members up-to-speed on the latest information, clearly we need to do more. Some products in our stores DO contain GMOs – just like any other food store in the country, due to the pervasiveness of GMOs – and we need to do a better job of making sure our Team Members understand this so they can provide customers with the facts.
Whole Foods - I'm calling you Out. I'm asking you to put your money where your mouth is.
I am starting an organization and website ( coming soon) called Consumer GMO Choice. We know over time people become lax on label checking. This is what the GMO proponents will count on if Proposition 37 passes. It isn't enough to have house brands certified Non GMO when so many products in your stores contain GMO's. If the labeling passes, people will waste valuable shopping time by checking labels. Consumer GMO Choice proposes all grocery stores separate the GMO foods and Non GMO foods into sections or isles of thier own - and advertise as such. This will help shoppers save time and help get more people in and out of your stores with a better shopping experience. For the grocers, you will see which types of foods the public wants more and order your products accordingly. If consumers don't want GMO foods, then you wont make money on those foods and you will stop carrying them. The consumers get what they want, and your profits grow by getting rid of unwanted GMO foods and replacing them with foods the public wants.
You can be the first store chain in the country to do this and your costumers will love you for it. Would you be willing to separate GMO Foods from Non GMO Foods for the mutual benefit of you and your costumers? Stores already do this with organic sections and foods from other countries. I'm not asking you to do anything that would be difficult or time consuming. What do you think?

I think Info Wars has twisted the issue. If you want Non-GMO foods then you should be buying Certified Organic Foods (COF). Under COF, they are guaranteeing that this product is non-GMO and grown organicly. It is not a law yet (which is what Prop 37 is about) that they have to label a conventional food as beeing GMO other than that it is conventionally grown.
