It describes a letter received by Novartis, a Swiss company
that owns Gerber Baby Foods. The letter was from a green
peace representative in New York (Charles Margulis). The
letter asked whether Gerber uses genetically engineered
products in its baby food. And further it asked for the
steps being taken to ensure that there are no genetically
modified ingredients. Here is a snip
"But the concern at Novartis is that all this could turn on
a dime -- that because of Greenpeace's efforts, European
worries about the safety of genetically modified crops
could leap across the Atlantic and damage Gerber, the
largest baby-food producer in the U.S. Novartis officials
had been hoping gerber was immune to the
anti-bioengineered-food passions that have whipped through
Europe in recent years. The letter from Mr. margulis made
them stop hoping and start planning."
It goes on and on, have a read if you have an opportunity.
Heinz is also mentioned as taking action.
