Letter from Foster Farms regarding GMO's

Body:I am just emailing to inform you that I will no longer purchase your
products until they are non-GMO.



LIVINGSTON, Calif. - During its 63-year history, Foster Farms has been
committed to providing the freshest, safest and most wholesome poultry
products in a manner exceeding FDA and USDA requirements. The company
continually seeks and adopts effective measures to ensure the quality
and safety of its poultry products, and uses the most technologically
advanced systems available in doing so.

Foster Farms is sensitive to consumer concern about genetically
modified feed ingredients (known as "GMOs"). At this time, Foster Farms
purchases feed ingredients (soy, corn) from a variety of quality suppliers.
These feed ingredients may contain biotechnology components. All
grains used by Foster Farms meet FDA quality and safety standards.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture, Food and Drug Administration (FDA),
and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) carefully review the
safety implications of all new, genetically modified grain varieties on
food, feed and the environment (such as resistance to certain destructive
insects) before any can be approved. Not only has the government
confirmed the safety of these grains, but laboratory tests have also shown
that animals given feed made from biotech grains are indistinguishable
from those receiving conventional grains. None of the components that
may result from the biotech variety has been found in the animals eating
the feed.

Foster Farms continually monitors developments in this area and
continues to be guided by sound science, input from federal agencies and
consumer demand. The company will continue to communicate about new
developments and/or new products to its consumers and customers.

Foster Farms is the leading poultry producer in the Western United
States. Based in Livingston, Calif., the company has remained a
family-owned business since it's founding in 1939. Foster Farms branded fresh
chicken is always locally grown on farms it owns or operates in each of
its markets (California, Oregon and Washington). Foster Farms
specializes in producing high quality fresh chicken products that are all natural
with no preservatives or sodium-based additives, in addition to a full
line of other delicious poultry products. The company produces and
delivers premium quality poultry products to retailers, warehouse clubs and
foodservice customers throughout the West.

- Yeah. I trust the Government alrighty.
