If you haven’t been following the story, I recently learned that Aunt Millie’s, a company that produces bread products in the Midwest, had taken up a non-GMO label for a handful of their products. I also noticed on their website that they had some seriously misleading and confusing information for consumers about genetically modified crops. (You can read the original article here.) I shared my disappointment about this with the company via Twitter, and they responded with an invitation for me to submit any suggestions I had for revising the statement on their website. (You can read about my proposed revisions here.)
I’m happy and impressed to say that the same day I sent in my suggestions, I did receive the following response from Melissa at Aunt Millie’s bread:
Thank you for your thoughtful and thorough input. Our R&D Department will review it. It may take some time to determine if we will make your suggested changes but we will definitely review them.
I will definitely keep tabs on this and update readers if and when I hear back from them about my suggested revisions.
I also want to thank everyone that stopped by Aunt Millie’s Facebook page and tweeted at the company in support of my revisions. It means the world to me that you guys support my efforts and I’m so glad to see it!
Hi Aunt Millie’s Bread! I was truly impressed that you responded to The Farmer’s Daughter USA in such an open-minded…

It is always so important that we all speak up and say something when we see this type of thing happening. If you would like to reach out to them, you can do so on their Facebook page or their Twitter page.
