GMO Inside Applauds Whole Foods' Decision to Drop Chobani Yogurt

Dec 18, 2013, 15:50 ET from Green America, Washington, DC

WASHINGTON, Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- GMO Inside, a campaign of national non-profit Green America, issued the following statement today:

"We applaud Whole Foods' decision today to drop Chobani yogurts from its shelves.  GMO Inside first sounded the alarm about the presence of GMO feed in the milk found in Chobani products in summer 2013. Since then, twenty thousand consumers have taken action to urge Chobani to drop GMOs from its supply chain, and posted comments on Chobani's Facebook page.

GMO Inside encourages consumers to seek out the growing range of non-GMO and organic yogurts and is pleased that Whole Foods will be making more space available on its shelves for these options, particularly when it concerns GMO animal feed in dairy operations. This announcement is further proof that consumer demand is being reflected in the marketplace when it comes to non-GMO alternatives."

Tell Chobani to get GMOs out of their dairy operations here:
