How to Avoid the New GMO Apples

According to the Ag publication from CapitalPress.com, about 1,000 to 1,200, 40-pound boxes of the new Arctic Golden, GMO apple will be sliced and sold in grocery stores for marketing purposes in the western U.S. this fall.

The company is growing most of its own apples in the Pacific Northwest, on the East Coast, and in Canada. [4] Retailers, food service, and quick-serve restaurants have all expressed interest in using the GMO apples according to the CapitalPress report, which means that people eating out may unwillingly become test subjects.

In order to make sure you’re avoiding the new GMO apples, here’s what you must do:-Buy certified organic or Non-GMO Project Verified whenever possible, or from a trusted local farmer-Do not buy any apples labeled ‘Arctic,’ which may be designated with a sticker or special packaging-Avoid buying any unlabeled or pre-sliced apples, like those found in cafeterias or kids’ meals
