    Great counterpoint Kellen. Thanks for sharing. I would still prefer to know what I am buying and be able to make the choice myself.

    That's a ridiculously long time for that to happen. They need *5 years* to label all of their products? Come on, it's as simple as asking their distributors to label their products by a 1 year deadline, and then dropping products that refuse to do so.

    It sounds like to me that this is just a preservation spin campaign, to make it look like they are complying with the demands of its consumer base.

    Sad, really.

    I hope they do a better job at this than they do at buying local. My family used to sell vegetables to Wild Oats, and for a short time to Whole Foods after they bought out Wild Oats, but they've cut ties with most of the local farmers in my region who used to sell to them.

    It's about time! I'm happy they are taking the lead on this. I hope their efforts influence other markets to do the same.
