Visitors to Cheerios Facebook page are able to use a Cheerios App and respond to what the cereal meant to them. Cheerios has been a household name since 1941, and many a toddler has nibbled-the-day-lights out of them from their highchairs and strung the round cereal up at Christmastime as garland. Now America wants to abandon the cereal all together in response to the cereal manufacturer’s-General Mills, using GMO ingredients.
Concerned parents, “we are not lab rats”
The App now is closed. When you go to cheerios.com a question on the opening page asks, “How old does a child need to be to eat Cheerios?” Nine to twelve months is the reply. The entre opening page is geared towards kids, but not one thing on it addressees parent’s concerns over GMO ingredients. There is even a “Cheerios Timeline” on the “Our Story” link, which also asks you tosubmit your story about Cheerios to them.
Everything you wanted to know about Cheerios, not on their site it’s not
One of the links on the opening page takes you to the “top questions,” there are 52 to be exact and not one of them is about General Mills using GMO’s or Cheerios being made with them. Questions about Cheerios fat content, are they peanut-free, cholesterol free, “What is Cheerios?” and “Where can I get coupons?”
How will General Mills respond to the cries of their fans
General Mills hears the heated responses of the public and never before in the years since 1941 has Cheerios been viewed in such dismal light. If GMO labeling is what the people want the why hasn’t the government and the companies like General Mills responded, the request isn’t going to go away.
Does President Obama and his children eat GMO-ingredient foods? Are they willing to stand up in front of the nation eating a bowl of GMO Cheerios to prove to us it’s safe for everyone to eat, not just now but in the future. Can he promise America will not get cancer and tumors because GMO food was ingested?
