I'm sorry that there appears to be a resurgence of rumors (from over 2 years ago) that we have an affiliation with Monsanto. This is absolutely not true. To further verify this, we recently announced GMO labeling for our stores. You can read more at http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/blog/gmo-labeling-coming-whole-foods-market.

I am absolutely frustrated and disgusted with this. You sold us out and let us down. Shame on YOU! You don't really care about the people or what you are feeding them as long as it makes you more money.

I had faith in Whole Foods. Not so much anymore. People do not want GE foods. And Mother Earth probably doesn't either. I'm going to shop at farmer's markets from now on.

GE crops are NOT natural or organic. You might as well close your doors now Whole Foods Market if you think otherwise.

We, your customers, are outraged knowing that you have sold your conscience to the GMO project. Why should we be surprised that money doesn't mandate your courses of action, like it does almost ALL OTHER companies including those in the food industry? Many of us are ready to boycott your "natural" food company because you have betrayed us at the expense of selling us a deceitful notion of healthy food. I would definitely like an answer to share with my network of concerned citizens AND CLIENTS of WHOLEFOODS, INC.

@ADRIANA - The article that more than likely directed you to this blog post is old, false and continues to circulate online. We recently announced GMO labeling for our stores. You can read more information about this at http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/blog/gmo-labeling-coming-whole-foods-market. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Why is it that European Union is smart enough to outright ban sale and use of GMO foods and seeds and ONLY the USA is dumb enough to push, and often force, the acceptance of GMO seed. Why must we all become sick and die before our government stops putting corporate profits and their lies before common sense and the health of our food sources?

Dear Sir or Madam, I do NOT support any type of COEXISTENCE with GMO's or GE's or any hint of that kind of stuff. I want Mother Nature's products - unaltered and unbiased - and 100% organic - as God intended for us

You say "So, faced with the choice between full deregulation of GE alfalfa or conditional deregulation of it, our best chance at preserving seed purity, and the future of organic and non-GE agriculture now is to fight for every protection available under the USDA’s conditional deregulation coexistence option." This is a "false choice." Banning GE alfalfa is the correct choice for me and for WFM. So, why do you abandon your customers who, given the correct facts to consider, would not approve of the introduction of GE alfalfa just as they would object to any GE agricultural product? The consequences of your policy on this matter is detrimental to the health of your customers though a big plus for corporate farmers who do not care about our health. You have abandoned us. JFD
