lab-vs-organic-125x125This Action Alert is Over.

Contacted by Cornucopia staff, the USDA today confirmed that they have extended the comment period through Monday, December 16 on the controversial genetically engineered Arctic Apple®.  The federal website comment portal had been experiencing availability problems and was cited as the reason for the extension.

Okanagan Specialty Fruits has developed a GMO Golden and Granny Smith apple that is designed not to brown when sliced and exposed to the air.  Browning reflects an apple’s freshness – something all consumers are interested in.
