>>PLEASE SPREAD THIS FAR AND WIDE:
>>
>>FRITOS-LAY has announced it would no longer use genetically engineered corn
>>in its produces. THIS IS THE START OF SOMETHING BIG. The biotech giants
>>have started a campaign to pressure Fritos to reverse their decision. If
>>Fritos holds to their commitment, this may very well be the start of the
>>downfall of genetically engineered foods in America.
>>
>>FRITOS IS CAREFULLY WATCHING THE CONSUMER RESPONSE.
>>
>>PLEASE send them an email <consumer.affairs@fritolay.com>
>>or call them 1-800-352-4477 (ask for operator 100)
>>
>>Tell them you applaud their decision.
>>Tell them that you do NOT want to eat foods that have been genetically
>>engineered to act as an insecticide.
>>Tell them that you don't believe that genetically engineered food
>>is safe for consumer or environmental health and you commend the
>>direction they are taking. And that it would be a big
>>disappointment if they cave in and reverse their decision.
>>Tell them that now they should go certified organic!!
>>
>>CONTACTING FRITO-LAY:
