Starbucks responds to Neil Young’s boycott of their products by denying that they are involved in a lawsuit against Vermont over new laws governing genetically engineered foods. Starbucks statement:
Starbucks is not a part of any lawsuit pertaining to GMO labeling nor have we provided funding for any campaign. And Starbucks is not aligned with Monsanto to stop food labeling or block Vermont State law. The petition claiming that Starbucks is part of this litigation is completely false and we have asked the petitioners to correct their description of our position.
