That explains it. I went to chipotle on Saturday and there was a sign about carnitas not being available. Unlike most people in this thread I think Chipotle is delicious as is there pizza place pieology. that being said I'm sure nothing there is really good for you....glad they are keeping an eye open however.

Your options are rather limited, then. Most meat, fruit and vegetables are off limits for you.

I do the best I can with what I am left with. Ultimately, our food will continue to get better as consumers are becoming more educated and simply not buying the GMO crap that is thrown at them. I try to buy foods raised from heirloom seeds and Amish chicken and beef. As long as we put our dollars where our values lie the corporate masters will have to change what they do.

Geez people. Learn the freakin difference between hybrid and GMO:

Hybrid Seeds: What are they?

Farmers and gardeners have been cultivating new plant varieties for thousands of years through selective breeding. They did this by cross-pollinating two different, but related plants over 6 to 10 plant generations, eventually creating a new plant variety.

GMO Seeds: What are they?

Unlike hybrid seeds, GMO seeds are not created using natural, low-tech methods. GMO seed varieties are created in a lab using high-tech and sophisticated techniques like gene-splicing. Furthermore, GMO seeds seldom cross different, but related plants. Often the cross goes far beyond the bounds of nature so that instead of crossing two different, but related varieties of plant, they are crossing different biological kingdoms — like, say, a bacteria with a plant.

For example, Monsanto has crossed genetic material from a bacteria known as Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis) with corn. The goal was to create a pest-resistant plant. This means that any pests attempting to eat the corn plant will die since the pesticide is part of every cell of the plant.

The resultant GMO plant, known as Bt Corn, is itself registered as a pesticide with the EPA, along with other GMO Bt crops. In other words, if you feed this corn to your cattle, your chickens, or yourself, you’ll be feeding them an actual pesticide — not just a smidgeon of pesticide residue.

GMO cross fish DNA with strawberries for instance. They do UNNATURAL things to seeds.

Good on Chipotle and I hope other eating establishments do the same. As far as processed foods in Chipotle, haven't a clue. I've never eaten at one.

"Unnatural", huh?

The discovery of transfer DNA (T-DNA) in sweet potato indicates horizontal transfer of genetic material from bacterium to plant. The process is identical to that used in the generation of other transgenic plants, and transgenic plants bear the same bacterial DNA sequences used in the transfer process.

"Natural" is a meaningless term. The only people that fear gmos are the scientifically illuterate chicken littles.
