Goal: Keep genetically modified potatoes out of McDonald’s french fries.
If the USDA approves a new genetically engineered (GE) potato (which could soon happen), McDonald’s has the power to make or break this engineered spud’s success. Thanks to their famous fries, McDonald’s is the single largest purchaser of potatoes in the United States. That’s why we’re calling on them right now, before the GE potato is even approved, to commit that they won’t buy it.
Genetically engineered foods are inadequately tested, and they’re potentially unsafe. In the case of GE fries, that’s a particular problem because they’re marketed to kids. But McDonald’s can help keep GE potatoes off the market, because if they won’t buy it, then farmers probably won’t plant it.
Join us in telling McDonald’s: we don’t want McFrankenfries!
