Thank you Whole Foods! Now if you could just put a store in Grand Rapids, MI so we didn't have to drive to Ann Arbor or Detroit just to get to one! :)

Thank you for this, I will return to doing the majority of my shopping at Whole Foods in 5 years when ALL of your products are labeled.

As a staunch GMO labeling advocate, I applaud Whole Food's move! For those who are still not clear on what GM and GE foods are, please take a look at my articles on the topic: education on this issue is key! http://www.nutritionprescription.biz/gmo-blog.html Michele Jacobson Certified Clinical Nutritionist NOFA-New Jersey, Public Policy Committee

Thank you so much, Whole Foods for listening to your customers! This will hopefully start a wonderful precedence of valuing customer concerns & the right to know proper food content labeling. Thank you for being an advocate & a stronger voice of individuals looking to take back their health! We value your company & what it stands for.

Thank you for taking the initiative of enforcing labeling in the products you carry in your stores! You have my support, and while I haven't shopped in your stores before, I will most certainly be taking that drive to one of your stores quite soon :)!

5 years is too long. During those 5 years many people will be unawarely eating GMOs purchased at your stores and will incur the known and unknown health risks. It seems to me that this announcement of labeling to come in 5 years is nothing more than a marketing ploy. Whole Foods can look like the good guy while it sits back and waits to see what the climate over GMOs becomes and what laws will be passed regarding them. I'm not buying this ploy. If you are serious, take visible action in your store right now. Perhaps you could start a GMO free section and enlarge it as more and more of your suppliers come on board.

Thank you for listening to your customers. This is great news! However, 5 years is way too long. I hope your supplier partners will comply much sooner.

But I was under the (false?) impression that Whole Foods did not carry GMO products!

Awesome news...will this also include your food bars??? Use to eat at the store before shopping but now I have no idea if there are gmo's in the ready made food. I'm assuming yes as I see canola oil as an ingredient in alot of items.
