HushLeaks exclusive: Whole Foods Market's (WFM) recent decision to announce GMO labeling across every one of its stores by the year 2018 was initiated by pending legislation regarding GMO and labeling.
Lead counsel at WFM has been in negotiations with plaintiff parties regarding GMO issues. The negotiations either stalled or collapsed. The GMO labeling announcement by WFM was hurriedly issued as a hopeful tactic to appease plaintiff parties and possibly derail the pending lawsuit negotiations.
Now that WFM has made the announcement, we are not certain where things stand with the pending legislation.
This information comes from inside WFM offices, but our source does not have access to the actual negotiations. This reporting is based on what they have heard around the WFM offices.
