KEEP GMO'S OUT OF ORGANICS. They have no place in commodity products, and certainly none in organic lines

I thank you for what you are doing, but wish it wasn't necessary. What a state our food system is in when I have to fight for the right to eat food, not food science. Thanks again...tp!

Do you not understand what ORGANIC means? The purpose of people purchasing organic produce/food is for them to eliminate and avoid unnecessary junk - hormones, additives, gmos, etc - in their food. Why would you even consider altering Organic? It makes no sense and it should be banned - if we have something to say, we should have the RIGHT to say LEAVE OUR NATURAL FOOD ALONE!!!!

GMOs have no place in the organic food industry. USDA - please do your job and take a stand here. It is the right thing to do.

Please please please do not permit GMO's in organic foods. GMO's in organic foods defeats the purpose of what organic foods are supposed to be about. Please think about the interests of the American people over those of Monsanto.

I am one who is aginst GMOs in food. There is no logical need for it in organics and non-organics. This is a political issue. It is about controling the food, becaouse if you control the food...you rule the world. We have lived off of non-GMO food from the beginning of time. We do not need it now. Plus, there are people who are allergic to it. I feel like we are part of one big science experiment. What if, all food was filled with GMOs? Survival of the fitest I guess. Gotta wonder what our governments intentions are. I keep hearing how over populated the earth is. It's not true! In actuality, the less people there are, the less to control. Yes. I am convinced there are people in power that intend to minimize the population. Look at China! They have their way of doing this. It's just not as cunning. There is plenty of room on this planet for everyone who exists to live peaceably. The problem is that most people want to live in very desireable places. Places in which everything we need and want is easily accessable. Who wants to live in the mountains 100s of miles from civilization. Not many people, including myself. We love accessability and there will always be pople who try to take advantage of this. I am thankful to Whole Foods Market for their efforts in preserving non-GMO natural and organic food, and making them available to us, the public. I pray that there will never be a time when original food becomes extinct. Thanks for reading my comment. FYI: watch "The Future of Food" on www.hulu.com under movies.

My response is a "definitive NO!, as if we don't have enough health problems in this country due to GREED!! I certainly do care about my food being contaminated. It is time to stop allowing companies to do whatever they desire in the name of profits!! USDA will hear from me! Thank you for sharing this information.

I do not want gm products around/in organic food. Please watch this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJcZLXX39KA Take action and write an e-mail. Protect yourself and your families cause no one else will do it for you. We should all at least have a choice to choose gmo products or not. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eKYyD14d_0&feature=related

Some much more notice than just eight days would have sure been nice so info could have been gathered and more than just a quick note prepared to try and stop this horrid action. I'll of course send what I can. I believe that much of the worlds present sickness is due to Monsanto and the other GMO manufacturers and most definitely the GMO crops that the U.S. is selling to our farmers and to the rest of the world is responsible for the collapse of the world's bee colonies and for the death of millions and millions of butterflies and beneficial insects. Next thing we can expect from Monsanto and the U.S. government will be the announcement that they have joined together to form a corporation to manufacture a wonder food and they'll call their corp. SOYLENT GREEN. Let those who have ears to hear, let them hear!

People don't want to eat food that is "round-up ready"! I think people buy organic for all sorts of reasons but I assure you one of them is not so they eat round-up--in one way or another. The fact that companies, especially Monsanto, are creating such products is scary--think about it, plants that can withstand the weed killer Round Up. There is something very wrong with that idea. Then those plants cross pollinate with traditional non-GM plants and ta-da we have more genetically modified plants. No wonder so many people have chronic diseases and allergies-especially allergies, the human body knows these foods aren't truly from nature and creates a defense--the allergy.

We do not want gmo’s in our organic foods! This is going to be a huge topic & people will be outraged.

Organic is the only label we can currently depend on to know that the produce has not been genetically modified. If you take that away from the aware and concerned grocery consumer be prepared for everyone who has been complaisant and silent to start to stand up and fight. The fact that using GMOs in Organics is even being considered let's every American know who is truly running the food industry and it isn't the USDA. I say NO to GMOs in Organics and if I am not heard now I will only become more persistent and speak louder until mu voice is heard.

This has to stop! We are polluting the few natural crops we have left! What happens when years from now we realize how incredibly bad these GMOs are for our bodies, but it's too late to grow the natural products because the GMOs have taken over every crop. What do we tell our children and grandchildren when they do not even have the option to eat the real thing any more? It seems to me the government is making the choice for us about what to eat. We must take control back and decide for ourself what goes into our bodies. Please stop the proliferation of GMOs.

I think it's utterly disgusting to genetically modify our FOOD. It's revolting to cover our food with poisons. THIS IS NOT WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT!!! The people want healthy NATURAL food that sustain life, Not slowly kill us!

"Organic and natural foods consumers do care about the presence of GMOs in their food. In fact, avoiding genetically engineered ingredients is one of the key reasons that shoppers seek out organic foods." Exactly. They will definitely be hearing from me. Thanks so much for placing this so prominently on your website. Otherwise, I'd be completely unaware.

In order to have a better future for this population, we need to take care of what we put in our bodies TODAY. Organic is the way to go to achieve that, but then how come is 3 times more expensive than toxic food? Please help us. Thank you.
