ABSTRACT
The article presents information on Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Arkansas, which has been asked by media and several petitions not to sell genetically modified (GM) sweet corn. Recently the "Chicago Tribune" reported that Wal-Mart would not restrict sales of a new variety of GM sweet corn developed by agricultural biotech company Monsanto Co. In response, Wal-Mart spokeswoman Dianna Gee argued that the store is not directly sourcing genetically modified corn.
