Your boycott of a company that uses GM crops in their food is working. As consumers continue to shun Kellogg’s for contributing to the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association and putting genetically modified ingredients in the food it offers (while sometimes claiming to be ‘all natural’), sales are plummeting again.
Total net sales for Kellogg’s fell again by 8.5%, which amounts to a continued nosedive. This makes the 8th decline in the last 9 quarters of failing profits.
In response, the company is trying to win back consumer approval by saying that it will stop using artificial colors and flavors by 2018, and only cage-free eggs by 2025 – a decade from now! Is this company kidding? It is clear that Kellogg’s is trying to conduct business as usual, while just marketing themselves as a caring company.
The CEO of Kellogg’s, John Bryant, seems to be ignorant of the demands of his customers, whom have made it clear they want verified non-GMO status in order to even consider eating Corn Flakes or any Kashi-brand foods.
Battle Creek, Michigan-based Kellogg’s has also been trying to expand its snack foods business and increase its international presence through acquisitions, but an international market won’t tolerate GMOs in their food either, as evidenced by more than a dozen EU countries that recently banned them.
Keep boycotting Kellogg’s. The company doesn’t want you to know what is in its food, and only after sales plummet like a broken record does Kellogg’s try to make any changes to the products it produces. We can do better.

I don’t buy Kellogg’s products – and I also put post-it notes on their products to say “made with GMOs” or “may contain GMOs.” I particularly target Kashi, as some stores misleadingly place it in the ‘natural and organic’ aisles.
Yes and you are stupid enough to believe your little post-its have turned a single person.
Oh and by the way, the reason some stores put Kashi in the organic aisle is to try and attract someone to that deserted part of the store.
As I’ve moved on after I post notes, I don’t know what effect they had; but conversations I’ve had with people who saw me posting notes have had very good effects. – So again, GMO R. is just a morally ugly person who’s compelled to insult people.
After I told Kroger that Kashi isn’t organic, Kashi was moved OUT of the organic section. This organic section gets lots of customers. – So again, GMO R. is a liar.
No one believes GMO about anything because GMO always resorts to lies and insults.
Fortunately the majority agrees with me since things like labeling have been defeated all five times when left up to the people. Also, let’s not forget the powers that be have said no to labeling, unless voluntary of course.
Labeling has Never been left up to the people. Monsanto, Kraft, Coke, General Mills, the Grocery Manufacturers Assoc., etc. threw millions of dollars into fighting state initiatives by blanketing the airwaves with lies.
Voluntary labeling doesn’t work. FDA has had a voluntary labeling program in place for ca. 14 years, and not one ‘proud’ corporation has jumped up to ‘proudly’ label its ‘safe and wholesome’ GMOs.
GMO R also lies that “the majority” agrees with him/her/it. A full 92% of Americans want GMOs labeled, and 53% of Americans want GMOs banned.
Sorry not true in Colorado, California, Washington, Oregon, or especially Arizona.
You’re lying again.
Simple, the people had a chance on labeling in each of those five, so which ones did it pass then? See everyone can look this up and see you are the one that doesn’t understand. If you get this simple stuff wrong then how can any one believe you on anything else?
Secrecy and Corruption Seen in Most State Governments in U.S.

Nearly all state governments in the United States are doing a poor job of eliminating corruption and secrecy, a new study shows.
Again your babbles have nothing to do with the fact that labeling lost. If you can’t be relevant go back to your blowup doll, or did she reject you for your lying ways as well?
So with your statements, I’ll guess your are supporting the corporate hijacking of our Govt as the American way? I’ll forgive the Govt, but not you.
Again the trolls openly state the rights of the People fall under corporate rights.
go back to your blowup doll, or did she reject you for your lying ways as well?
Do you mean my wife?
Never said anything about any bodies rights, just more of your lies.
And whatever you want to call your blowup doll is fine with me.
Yes, seeing the big picture is dangerous to the GMO industry.
They had their chance, but the stupidity of their leadership has lead to their demise.
90%+ is a demise? You really need to get caught up on current events. Did mommy not pay the cable bill?
Over 90% of the Nations Citizens want GE labeling, yes demise in the representing the voice of the People.
Sanders Claims CBS Canceled Agriculture Interview Because Monsanto Was “Threatening To Sue”

Strange how you 90% didn’t come through in the five state that the people had a chance to have a say.
Obviously because they didn’t have a chance or a say on the issue, otherwise there would be labeling.
This is an excellent narrative,
By Robert Parry
One way to view, is to envision a giant bubble that serves as a hothouse for growing genetically modified “group thinks.” Most inhabitants of the bubble
praise these creations as glorious and beyond reproach, but a few
dissenters note how strange and dangerous these products are. Those
critics, however, are then banished from the bubble, leaving behind an
evermore concentrated consensus.
Strange how that bubble contains around 7 billion.
Funny how you make excuses for labeling failing. All anyone had to do was vote, and they did and labeling LOST.
Funny, most voters are ill informed and continue to rely on their group think, if so and so says vote this way I’ll support his views. Then there are those who just check the blocks, since they are there voting anyways.
You might not be able to understand this or even believe it since it is just out of this world, I know people who vote and some of their methods are rather disturbing. Statistically the vote can be measured in media methods and advertising methods, not to mention political affiliations and information coming out of those camps or lack thereof.
Should we mention the majority of the population doesn’t vote.
Far too many factors have dramatic effect on the votes and their out comes.
You claim 90% want labeling and then they go to vote and they magically forget this and vote against it? LOL, you aren’t even dumb enough to believe that. As for the ones that don’t vote? If they do not wish to take part in our government when given a chance then so be it, but they really don’t have any excuse to cry about what happens. I know this is hard for you to understand since mommy always kisses your boo boos and makes it better.
As the PRO GMO folks are fast to point out, us commoners are too stupid to understand the science and too stupid to understand most things involving our own everyday affairs. Most of these views are purely political pandering, the scientific community should know better.
Some of the pro advertised claims are,
Labeling will increase costs, BS it didn’t in Europe.
Jobs will be lost, BS they will just plant non-GMO.
We are helping feed the world, BS they have their own Govt’s that are accountable for their people.
There are currently 21 million people starving in Yemen, and the big 6 are no where to be seen.
So the mass media seem to be supplying the same unprovable BS to the general public, relying on fear mongering and lies about humanitarian claims plying on the emotions to misdirect to voter, as provided by the propaganda machine of the corporate monopolies. Imagine if the big 6 told the truth, bottom line, profit.
You claim 90% want labeling and then they go to vote and they magically forget this and vote against it?
So your a psychic and know what everybody does and how they all think?
LOL, sarcasm is wasted on you since you aren’t smart enough to figure it out. Not surprising.
GMO R is so anxious and fearful that no one will interact with him/her/it.
So I’ve tossed GMO a hushpuppy by posting this. Good dog. Sit.
Now try something different.
If someone pumped the propaganda out of GMO, it’d dry up and die.
And if people like you would stop the lies and playing with people’s irrational fears, then gmos would be accepted just like mutation breeding was and life would go on for the better of all.
