Tell McDonalds: No McFrankenfries for me


Target: McDonalds
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!

  5. Lesley Blissett says:

    It was found in the UK that GM potatoes were toxic, I don’t know if this has been overcome but I don’t fancy trying any to see if they have solved that problem! Fortunately, I NEVER eat at McDonalds because I do not agree with what they have done in the Amazon and for other ethical reasons!

  6. tracy o'neill says:

    well I’m vegan and don’t go near McDonalds or the other fast way to die food chains. I’ll never why people eat that shit.

  7. tracy o'neill says:

    well, I’m vegan. Its the only way to stop McDonalds so why do people still eat their unethical products from a poor tortured soul? I’ll never understand why someone would want to eat that. and take their children???!!!! That is not responsible parenting! So, go vegan and let this callous lot go out of business. McDonalds don’t care about you or any animal or the planet 🙁

      Hmm. Tracy – ever heard of (unlabeled) GM veg and grain ? or do you live on fresh air. Oh sorry I forgot, the air in the US isn’t fresh either.

    I like McDonalds because it is a universal place: everybody comes there: all kinds of people of all kinds of races! McDonalds has a lot of power, hopefully they take their responsibility to keep the GEpotatoes of the market!
