With Thanksgiving Approaching, GMO Inside Shows Consumers How To Avoid Genetically Modified Food On Their Holiday Tables

Tips Include Ways To Spread the Word Among Friends and Family, Including Facebook and Pinterest

WASHINGTON, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Genetically modified ingredients can be an unwelcome and hidden guest at your Thanksgiving celebration. This year, GMO Inside, a new coalition that advocates for increased consumer awareness of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in foods, is offering tips and suggestions for consumers on how to remove unwanted GMOs from their holiday feasts. From identifying GMO-laden products and offering non-GMO alternatives to giving tips on how to help spread the word on genetically engineered foods, GMO Inside hopes to give consumers the information they need to celebrate a non-GMO Thanksgiving.

Alisa Gravitz, president, Green America said: " Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate with family and friends. Consumers should be able to do this without worrying about feeding hidden GMOs to their loved ones. GMO Inside's Thanksgiving campaign allows people to make educated decisions about what will be served at their holiday gathering."

Some common Thanksgiving products that are suspect for GMOs include: Campbell's Tomato Soup, Wesson Canola Oil, Bruce's Yams, Hershey Milk Chocolate, Pepperidge Farm Crackers, Kraft Classic Ranch Dressing, Rice-a-Roni chicken flavored rice, Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce, and Kraft's Stove Top Stuffing.  GMO Inside provides alternatives to these foods here: http://gmoinside.org/launch-thanksgiving/.

GMO Inside offers consumers the following ways to spread the word to friends and family:

  • If hosting Thanksgiving dinner, print out a menu of foods served for your guests and make sure to note that they are non-GMO and organic.
  • Post a photo of your non-GMO feast on Pinterest or Facebook. You can also share your meal on the https://www.facebook.com/GmoInside page.
  • If donating food to shelters this holiday, donate organic and non-GMO foods.
  • If you already purchased holiday food containing GMOs, you can print GMO' labels, place them on food, photograph and upload the photo to social media to warn family and friends. Photos can also be shared with the GMO Inside community at https://www.facebook.com/GmoInside.
  • You can check to see if food containing GMOs has money-back guarantees. If it does, you can send food back to the manufacturer and ask for your money back.

GMO Inside believes that all U.S. citizens have the right to know what is in the food they eat. Genetically engineered foods have not been adequately tested for human consumption. It is unethical to put an experimental technology into the food Americans feed their families without providing information on the label that allows Americans to choose whether or not their food contains GMOs. Americans deserve to know if there are GMOs inside.
