Keep GMO apples out of our shopping carts

Dear Friend,

I just asked the CEOs of the major grocery store chains to refuse to
carry genetically modified apples or processed foods that use them.

The USDA is likely to fast-track approval of a new GMO apple variety
engineered not to brown when sliced. Over a minor cosmetic issue, our
supermarkets could be flooded with experimental apples that look
fresher than they should and unlabeled products sweetened with GMO
apple juice.

I just signed a petition telling major grocery stores around the
country that I don't want GMO apples on their store shelves. Will you
join me and help stop this potentially unsafe food?
