i wrote to GERBER and asked them if they have genetically modified ingredients in their baby formula and this is the letter they sent back to me:

Hi Virginia,

Thank you for contacting us about Gerber® Good Start® Soy formula.

We use both GM and non-GM soy ingredients. Genetically modified soybeans are approved by the FDA and have been widely grown in the US for over 10 years. All GM crops are reviewed by the FDA to make sure they are safe and nutritionally equivalent.

If you have additional questions or need assistance, please call 1-800-284-9488 and refer to File No. 040665655A. Our representatives are available any time day or night to assist you.

Best wishes from your friends @ gerber.com.
below was my reply:

This is my grandson and I worry about the fact that since my daughter is not physically able to nurse him she is forced to feed him formula (soy because he's lactose intolerant) and I don't want her to feed him a formula that is even part genetically modified. Genetically modified products are not regulated by the FDA as they have given the GMO manufacturers the ability to self regulate. Would you give your child's health and well being into the hands of a 'profit at all costs' big business who has been outed in other countries such as India where people and animals have been poisoned by Monsanto's genetically modified products. It is as bad as giving your child to a pedophile that has promised you that he will not molest your child...

WHAT WILL YOU DO? Will you give all of the babies something that WILL prove to be harmful to them? DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!

Wow...that's pretty bad. At least they were honest about it, but man. When you're a company that provides goods and services for children and infants, you really need to be more careful than this about what goes into your products. -.- I'm glad you stay on top of things like this for your grandson's sake.
