Whole Foods agrees to label all GMO foods by 2018 - but why the long wait? (article)
(NaturalNews) After years of dodging the issue, natural grocery chain Whole Foods Market has gone public with plans to require the labeling of all foods sold in its stores that contain genetically-modified organisms (GMOs). The only problem is that the new labeling requirements will not come into effect until 2018, which has already generated quite a bit of controversy as to why this natural and organic leader would wait an additional five years to act on such a pertinent issue.

According to an announcement made on the Whole Foods website, the company is a strong supporter of food labeling transparency, and has been working for years to voluntarily remove GMOs from its 365 Everyday Value line of products. Whole Foods has also been vigilant in supporting the Non-GMO Project, an independent verification system designed to phase out the use of GMOs in foods.

"Our goal at Whole Foods Market is to provide informed consumer choice with regard to genetically engineered ingredients," explains the company on its website. "Accordingly, we have set a deadline that, by 2018, all products in our U.S. and Canadian stores must be labeled to indicate whether they contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Whole Foods Market is the first national grocery chain to set a deadline for full GMO transparency."

Because that's how long it will take them to replace their products. I remember reading that over 50% of their "organic" products are GMOs.

Why would a "health food" store have any GMO food on their shelves in the first place?

I also read that it's nearly impossible to guarantee "Non-GMO" food due to cross contamination. That's why GMO labeling will never happen.

Did you ever watch documentaries like Food, Inc.?

Basically, Non-GMO (aka non-Monsanto) farms get infected with GMO seeds by the Monsanto farms that border them. Then Monsanto sues the farmer for illegally using their seeds, forcing them to either go bankrupt or start using GMO seeds.
