    Default Pull GMOs Out of Similac? Shareholders Vote No

    May 9th, 2013

    Shareholders of Abbott Laboratories voted April 26 on whether the company should adopt a non-GMO policy for its products, which include one of the nation’s leading infant formula brands, Similac.

    In the week prior to the vote, The Cornucopia Institute initiated a petition drive, in support of As You Sow, the shareholder activism group that filed the resolution, to collect signatures urging Abbott to remove GMOs from its infant formula. In just a week’s time, we collected nearly 15,000 signatures. Thank you to all who signed the petition.
    Andrew Behar, CEO of As You Sow, presented these signatures at the Abbott shareholder meeting prior to the vote.

    Apparently the powers that be are not satisfied with destroying the health of adults. Now they want to poison our children.
