Stop Monsanto's GE Sweet Corn!

Stop Monsanto's GE Sweet Corn!



Genetically engineered Monsanto sweet corn is approved and could be on your plate next year. We have more than 60,000 supporters who have already signed our petition to retailers, but we'd like to add your voice before we deliver it tomorrow. Sign the petition to make sure your grocery store doesn't sell you genetically engineered sweet corn.
Why should you be concerned about Monsanto's Genetically Engineered (GE) Sweet Corn?

1) This is the first Genetically Engineered Sweet Corn Monsanto is marketing for direct human consumption.
2) It will not be labeled.
3) It hasn't been tested for human safety.

Monsanto's sweet corn variety flew through the approval process, because it combines two genetically engineered traits that were approved in 2005 and 2008. These traits have never been engineered into a food that will be consumed directly by people. Most of the GE corn that is currently grown is eaten by animals or processed into corn syrup, corn oil and other corn ingredients that show up in processed food.
Monsanto's aiming to have their new GE Sweet Corn grown on 250,000 acres next year (roughly 40% of the sweet corn market). Take action now to make sure this corn isn't sold at your local grocery store.
