McCain scraps GMO

Potato processing giant McCain Foods says that as of next year, it will no longer handle genetically modified potatoes.

McCain chair Harrison McCain said last week the reason is not that the company thinks the technology is harmful.

Rather, months of pressure from consumers who fear genetic alteration of food convinced the company that it would be bad public relations to continue processing GM potatoes

McCain said the decision will hold until public perception changes.
