Whole Foods will label all genetically modified foods
The New York Times has just announced that Whole Foods will label all genetically-modified food.
In November 2012, I wrote that Whole Foods, in their San Francisco Haight store (right across from Golden Gate Park) had a large billboard which indicated that they supported Proposition 37. Unfortunately, I tried to obtain a copy of the photograph, but I cold not - even though they looked for me.

What stores in Kansas sell genetically-modified food, or is there any way to tell?
(Probably not - because they don't label these foods in the store!)
Can you give specific stores, products and labels?
