General Mills says some Cheerios made without genetically modified ingredients will start appearing on shelves soon.
The Minneapolis-based company said Thursday that it has been manufacturing its original-flavor Cheerios without GMOs for the past several weeks in response to consumer demand. It did not specify exactly when those boxes would be on sale.
Original Cheerios will now be labeled as Not Made With Genetically Modified Ingredients, although that it is not an official certification. The labels will also note that trace amounts of GMO ingredients could be present due to contamination during the manufacturing process, said Mike Siemienas, a company spokesman.

I’m reminded of the fact that bags of potato chips and other assorted junk foods often sport the claim “No Trans Fat!” IOW, “junk food is actually healthy!”
Then I advise you buy store brands which are just the same thing and cheaper, not only to save you money but because General Mills is in the forefront of supporting the Homo lobby. Avoid all its products.
It really matters very little, the elimination of gmo in the ingredients. Cheerios still has plenty of reasons not to be ingested, as a highly processed food substance, high in sugar, lack of fiber it still is part of what is wrong with what Americans eat, contributing to the obesity suffered by Americans and the catylst for early onset of self-induced Diabetes 2.
I’ll never eat them again!!!
Based on yesterdays news out of Colorado I wonder how much GMO pot Monsanto has on the burner.
I was a inveterate consumer of cereals, particularly General Mills.
Can’t even look at Lucky Charms anymore after using them to publicly promote their message of homosexual inclusion.
Oats is a not a GM crop, with no plans for any on the horizon according to GMO-compass.org so that pretty much makes General Mills a no talent publicity whore.
Yeah, they killed it for me.
Exactly, on the oats. Now, I want to see them do the same with corn flakes.
You don't think store brands support the homo or other liberal causes? Ooogada-Boogada!
BTW, store brands have all the flavor of soles on Pro Keds.
Every time they climb on the PC bandwagon they suck even worse.
Tried Cheerios recently?
Cardboard would be more tasty.
No amount of sugar can overcome the lack of trans-fats or GMO, or gluten-free crap GF can concoct.
Try the Malt-o-Meal analog.
Less than half price and better tasting.
IIRC from “Good Eats”, not sure what year of production, but only about 7% of the US oat crop is consumed [directly] by people.
I think they call this a “marketing conceit”... like saying a car is upholstered in “rich Corinthian leather”, when there is no such thing as “Corinthian leather”. If the public is silly enough to buy into a whole lot of nothing, the marketing people are more than willing to feed it to them.
and that explains ObamaCare too
Yup. Obama does this a lot!
