[FB] Heads up on GMO “Arctic” apple

(March 15, 2017)

A heads-up that this “Arctic” apple, genetically engineered not to “rust” as apples naturally do when cut, is already in a few Midwest US markets. “Safe” or not, I will not buy these, as I am especially concerned that the powerful technology for genetic manipulation is getting used for such frivolous ends. One of the uses this GM apple was designed for is salads where non-rusting apple slices would prolong shelf life. Caveat emptor.
