VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 16 (UPI) – Rocker Neil Young says he is giving adult his dear Starbucks lattes to make a indicate about a labeling of Genetically Modified food (GMO).
It seems a Seattle-based Starbucks has assimilated in a lawsuit fighting opposite a state of Vermont’s requirement that companies list genetically mutated mixture on their labels. Starbucks partner in a fit is Monsanto.
This doesn’t lay good with Neil Young, who posted a square entitled Goodbye Starbucks on his website.
“I used to line adult and get my latte everyday, though yesterday was my final one,” he wrote on a website. “Starbucks has teamed adult with Monsanto to sue Vermont, and stop accurate food labeling. Tell Starbucks to repel support for a lawsuit — we have a right to know what we put in a mouths. ”
“Considering that Starbucks has been on-going on LGBT and labor issues in a past, it’s unsatisfactory that it is operative with a biggest knave of them all, Monsanto,” he continued.
Vermont upheld a law final spring that requires all food products containing GMOs to be labeled as such by Jul 1, 2016.
In closing, Young wrote on his website: “Whatever we consider of GMOs, companies should not be regulating large lawsuits to overturn legitimate, approved decisions with clever open backing. ”
