Frankencandy and Tainted Candy for Halloween?
Genetically Engineered Sugar to Hit Supermarket Shelves this YearThe Organic Consumers Association's (OCA) and allies are calling for a boycott of all Kellogg's products after Kellogg's refuses to source only GE-Free Sugar. Monsanto's RoundUp Ready Genetically Engineered Sugar is due to hit stores this year, exposing millions of consumers to untested and unlabeled "frankenfoods” that threaten human heath, the environment and farmers' rights everywhere.Take Action!

Candy giant Hershey's Brazilian subsidiary announced that it will not use sugar from Genetically Modified (GM) beets. The US division of Hershey's, however, said on December 4, 2007 that it would use GM sugar from Monsanto's Genetically Modified Roundup Ready sugar beets. According to New West News, Kellogs, Hershey's and Crystal Sugar had all reversed their seven year opposition to GM Sugar because "public resistance to GM foods seems to have faded."
Frankencandy is NOT what you want to pass out on Hallowe'en this year, is it? It certainly is not what I have in mind for the tykes who innocently come to my door asking for a ritual treat.

Halloween candy for sale in the U.S. may be tainted with melamine
About a month ago, samples of Cadbury chocolate produced in China were found to contain melamine - an industrial chemical that can be used to mask protein deficiency. Now there is evidence that milk powder, produced in China, may have been used to produce Halloween candy that's currently on store shelves all across the country. Below I've provided some links to YouTube clips with more information. If you've already purchased any candy thought to be tainted, please throw it out immediately. And PLEASE share this urgent message with your family and friends to help ensure a safe Halloween for our children. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3dbBQPIFf0
