GM foods not served in Monsanto cafeteria

This is so ironic I don't know where to begin...
"The fight to ban genetically modified foods has won more converts -- some employees of Monsanto the company that is doing the most to promote GM products.

The Independent newspaper reports that there is a notice in the cafeteria of the Monsanto pharmaceutical factory is High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, advising customers 'as far as practicable, GM soya and maize (has been removed) from all food products served in our restaurant. We have taken the steps to ensure that you, the customer, can feel confident in the food we serve.'

The notice was posted by the Sutcliffe Catering Group.

Monsanto confirms the authenticity of the notice, but company spokesman Tony Coombes says the only reason for the GM-free foods is because the company 'believes in choice.'
So why is it lobbying so hard (and so far successfully) that GMO products must not be labeled as such? We like choice, too!

FYI: the only way the avoid is to go ORGANIC.

What a story! What's next - Congress removing all the corporate lobbyists so I can feel confident in the laws that they enact? : ^ )

Is this for real?! I was hoping that the Monsanto executives and their children will soon step up to participate in human GMO safety studies, as all over the world they are preaching that GMO's are just as safe as conventional food, but I guess after this I need to let go of the idea. I cannot believe that they are still not forced by governments to label these foods. We have a right to choose and I for one will not be signing up as an employee to get this fundamental right. Just plain Shocking!

It's very much the same as all the insurance/HMO CEOs do NOT use their own plans...I think there needs to be a law to force them to!
