Kellogg's Loves GMO Contamination of Organic - Boycott Morningstar Farms, Kashi, Bear Naked, and Gardenburger!

What argument does Kellogg's make for using genetically modified organisms (GMOs) as ingredients in its foods?
They say you might as well eat GMOs on purpose because, "Even organic ingredients can contain biotech ingredients due to cross-pollination."
This is an outrageous lie!
* For one, Kellogg's admits it doesn't use GMOs in the products it sells in Europe (which doesn't tolerate GMO contamination of imported foods).
* More importantly, while it is true that GMOs threaten the organic seed supply with contamination, the USDA National Organic Program rules include residue testing requirements (http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=oRrDDAI%2FKO1MRrAl160VWV9WsLW5KWe5) that would prevent contaminated products from being sold as organic.
Tell Kellogg's you'll be boycotting their products until they stop lying about GMO contamination of organic, start labeling their genetically engineered foods, and quit using GMOs in the products they sell in the U.S. Make sure you tell them that this includes a boycott of their so-called "natural" brands, Morningstar Farms, Kashi, Bear Naked, and Gardenburger! You can be sure that any products under these brands which aren't certified organic do contain GMOs.
Take action (http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=2d%2F10XkhKnVhv2dMHrdP%2FF9WsLW5KWe5) (http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=2d%2F10XkhKnVhv2dMHrdP%2FF9WsLW5KWe5)

Does it count if I don't buy any Kellogg's products to begin with?
I tried calling, but their phone system is malfunctioning, so if it's possible to leave a message, I couldn't. I'll have to try again during the week.

Bmc, the Take Action link takes you to a page with a link to a petition. No need to pay for a phone call.
And yes, I signed even though I don't eat any of their products either. It's the principle of the thing!

Done! I don't use Kellog products, but will not be buying them for someone else.

Thanks Islander, I clicked on the link, but did not see where to click for the petition. All I could find was a phone number to call to tell Kellogs you are boycotting them.

When you get the green page, immediately under the headline are the words, take action in red. Click that for the petition.
