Walmart To Sell Monsanto Corn
Walmart announced recently that it will sell genetically modified sweet corn created by Monsanto. The news comes after General Mills, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe’s all announced that they wouldn’t carry the GM corn, which is the first consumer product developed by Monsanto. Walmart, on the other hand, is seemingly unconcerned with any potential ramifications. “After closely looking at both sides of the debate and collaborating with a number of respected food safety experts, we see no scientifically validated safety reasons to implement restrictions on this product,” said the company.
