“No Genetically Modified Potatoes for us”, says Ronald McDonald

I'm lovin' my potatoes as they are.

McDonalds is not interested in a new potato variety that has been recently approved for commercial use. The new variety, called Innate Potatoes, is said to have resistance against bruising and lesser of a believed carcinogen. The USDA has given the company, JR Simplot the nod to grow these potatoes commercially, but McDonalds isn’t interested in them.

“McDonald’s USA does not source GMO potatoes nor do we have current plans to change our sourcing practice”, said a company spokesperson. No one’s messing with our fries!
