When grocery shopping, I try to check all of the items I buy and choose not to buy any that have a misleading or offensive label on them. I also try not to purchase items from companies that have chosen to stand against modern agriculture (General Mills, Hershey’s, and Aunt Millie’s being some examples.)
But I can also admit that I’m not perfect.
Over the weekend while grocery shopping, I accidentally allowed an item with a non-GMO label to get into the cart. I didn’t catch it at the check-out either and it made its way home with us. I’m disappointed that I let my hard earned dollars go to a company that promotes misleading and confusing labels, as well as a label that needlessly attacks my family’s farm.
To make up for it though, I used the opportunity to make a graphic about it. That at least helps; right?
For more information about the safety of genetically modified crops, I encourage you to check out my post about the over 2,000 scientific studies available supporting that GMOs are just as safe as their non-GMO counterparts.
