GMOs removed from Cheerios

Do you try to avoid buying foods with genetically modified ingredients?

(WFLX) - General Mills is now making its flagship cereal without ingredients containing genetically modified organisms.

Consumer advocacy groups have been pressuring the cereal maker to remove GMO's from the cereal.
