Chipotle attacked because of this?


The food poisoning outbreaks at Chipotle seemed unusual when I heard about them. Why was this one food franchise having such trouble with food poisoning, not just once but more. It was strange but time goes on and I forgot about it until I found out that Chipotle had pledged not to use GMO foods in their franchises. Now who would want to punish them for that? Obviously a very big and powerful agricultural entity

 I know that Monsanto has fought against requiring products with GMO content to be labeled in the USA. I'm not accusing them of sabotaging Chipotle for their stance on not using GMO products but something sure smells fishy here! This is reminiscent of mafia extortion tactics. Not only is Chipotle punished but other restaurants are put on notice, use our GMOs or else!

The WHO (that's the World Health Organization, not the seminal British rock band) defines Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) as “organisms in which the genetic material (DNA) has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally." Over the years, as we have learned more about GMOs, we’ve decided that using them in our food doesn’t align with that vision. Chipotle was the first national restaurant company to cook only with non-GMO ingredients.
The meat and dairy products we buy come from animals that are not genetically modified. But it is important to note that most animal feed in the U.S. is genetically modified, which means that the meat and dairy served at Chipotle are likely to come from animals given at least some GMO feed. We are working hard on this challenge, and have made substantial progress: for example, the 100% grass-fed beef served in many Chipotle restaurants was not fed GMO grain—or any grain, for that matter. In addition, many of the beverages sold in our restaurants contain genetically modified ingredients, including those containing high fructose corn syrup, which is almost always made from GMO corn.
