Stop GMO produce from being sold in the United States. Allowing the Arctic Apple into the marketplace could open the floodgates for more than 30 GMO crops currently in the pipeline. There are no long-term studies confirming the safety of GMO produce and no way to protect organic crops from GMO pollen spread by wind or insects, which would turn even organic apples into GMOs.

      I have to use an app on my phone at the store, just so I know what I can buy and what I can't, because I can't trust the US government to keep me safe. I read about the Arctic apple in the WSJ. I went to USDA.gov, but there is no way to send them a message, so I did a search for a petition. Even at Whole Foods, it's almost impossible for me to find non-GMO food. My diet is so restricted now, I no longer find enjoyment in food, and they want to take away APPLES now?!? WTH? What is more American than apples? Why don't you just burn the flag, and replace it with a Monsanto flag over the White House? It would be closer to the truth. I'm soooo angry over this! USDA: Don't you DARE try to take away my apples!

      I don't want to eat GMO produce. We don't know the long term health problems that could stem from GMO's.
