Following is Frito-Lay's response to my letter of concern about their GMO
Thank you for contacting Frito-Lay.
At the end of every year, Frito-Lay advises its contract farmers which
varieties of corn and potatoes to plant. In late 1999, due to increasing
questions from our consumers, we believed it was prudent to ask our farmers
not to provide genetically modified varieties.
Frito-Lay has no plans to market or advertise any type of "genetically
modified-free" claim. We also buy produce on the open market, and since more
than a quarter of the U.S. agricultural crop is derived from biotechnology,
like most other food companies we could have genetically modified
ingredients in our products.
We hope this information is helpful.
