U.S.A. GMO Issues – December, 2014 – One Grocer’s Thoughts

12/12/2014

Several readers have posted comments inquiring about the GMO status of various products reviewed on this blog.  A recent comment on our favorite tortilla chip prompted me to ask the grocer via email what the GMO content was for the tortilla chips specifically and their GMO policy in general.  The reply appeared well thought out and further briefly explained specific U.S.A.
