Stock up on Chobani‘s delicious single-serving containers of greek yogurt now, because Whole Foods has decided to stop carrying them.
The Wall Street Journal reports that the upscale grocer aims to clear the product from their shelves by 2014, making room for non-GMO products. Unfortunately for Chobani, Whole Foods has no plans to drop its competitor, Fage.
By 2018, Whole Foods will require all of its foods to carry GMO labeling for the safety of its consumers. According to the Whole Foods website, they currently carry about 250 non-GMO brands.
In a statement to The Huffington Post, a Chobani spokesperson said:
Whole Foods is one of the first major retailers taking steps to cut out GMOs completely. The problem at hand, however, is that we have no freakin’ idea if GMOs are actually dangerous or not. When California’s Prop 37 failed to pass several years ago, Scientific American ‘s Christie Wilcox wrote:
Would you base your product choice on GMOs? Let us know in the comments.
