William-
Since we purchase the majority of our U.S. crops from U.S. farmers--and genetically modified crops have been grown in the U.S. for the past two decades--our foods likely include ingredients derived from genetically modified crops in the same proportion that they occur in the United States food supply. Leading health organizations worldwide have concluded that GMOs are safe. Genetic modification has the ability to increase the nutrition value of our food while allowing farmers to use fewer pesticides. For U.S. consumers who prefer an alternative, our Kashi brand offers a variety of organic and Non-GMO Project Verified options. Thank you again for your feedback.

Hi Jessica,
Thank you for your quick response. It is alarming to me that five countries have now banned our grain or corn products. Monsanto seems to be the center of it all. If each country is reacting from results of their own testing, I think its time to start questioning. Maybe we have gone to far with trying to create the best pest and disease resistant products. Especially if there was no independent testing. Didn't the manufacturer get to submit their own test results to the FDA? It all seems scary to me. Thank you for your time.

All the articles I've read say that testing is done by the company who makes the GM seeds. How am I suppose to feel good about what I feed my family and friends when the fox is the one saying the henhouse is safe.

This issue concerns me for several reasons. Nobody with a background in science can say that the long-term effects of GMOs have been properly studied and peer reviewed; it is simply not a sound policy to sell food on a massive scale without knowing its effects decades from now.

Monsanto's litigious policies are creating a monopoly and quickly gaining more bad publicity and concern among the public. From both a business and a safety standpoint, this is a serious issue.

As an investor in Kellogg, I want to have consumer staples in my portfolio. I do understand that there are few alternatives in US crops to GMOs, however the worldwide market has begun to reject them. Is Kellogg looking into alternatives as the market is going to continue to demand one?

The dividend came this week from the stock, and I chose not to reinvest this time because this issue concerns me deeply.

I like Jessicas "beating around the bush" response. Jessica cigarettes were considered safe to use when pregnant a few decades ago, now we know better. I feel the same thing will happen with GMOs, but by then it will be too late as your company will have changed the dan and health of millions of clueless people in the US. It's a shame that money trumps health.

I refuse to buy Kellogg products now since they contributed to the No on I-522 campaign in Washington State (label foods processed with genetically modified ingredients.)

I think it is very disturbing that Kellogg's, a product brand that I've consumed since I was a child, and in turn fed my own kids, are not acting responsibly. I do not believe we have enough info on genetically modified food to be mass producing and selling to the populace. Hence, I will not be purchasing any products made by Kellogg. I believe if we cannot rely or depend on government to protect us, then the onus is on us. I hope Kellogg will get on board like General Mills.

Please use non-gmos in your products. They can be easily obtained from U.S. farmers and will help get GMOs out of our food supply. Until I see your products labeled with GMO-Free labels, I will continue to use alternative brands, like EarthFare or Amy's. GMOs have not been shown by research to be safe for human or animal consumption. They are experimental and we are guinea pigs.

Thanks for your honesty. I won't be buying Kellogg's anymore. Stop poisoning US citizens with GMOs! I had no idea your company was guilty of this. The Europeans are wise to the dangers, but US citizens are lab rats for monsanto! It's proven to cause cancer with long term ingestion. Thanks for letting me know... I will be avoiding your products from on!

DNA from gmo can directly pass into humans, thus changing human dna so that the person consuming the GMO is no long 100% human.
