 Food Lion 2   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-04)
Delhaize Group, the owner of Food Lion, is a Belgian food retailer that operated at the end of 2001 a sales network of 2,444 stores in ten countries on three continents.
It is a double standard for Food Lion to support a US policy that ignores consumers' rights in the freedom to choose GE-free food; while offering customers in other countries where they conduct business a greater choice of GE-free foods.
If, "Â…Food Lion is committed to supplying customers with better tasting, frequently requested, and nutritious products," then perhaps they need to be told more frequently that customers want to see GE-free foods on the shelves and behind the labels at Food Lion stores.

 freedomforum.org: Only 2 bucks for Food Lion, but journalists still feel the chill
Well, two ABC 'PrimeTime Live' journalists lied about who they were in order to get jobs as food handlers at Food Lion, then took video pictures of the food with cameras concealed on their persons.
Other employees of the food chain had told ABC that Food Lion was selling the public rat-gnawed cheese and rotten meat.
Perhaps the appeals court ruling in the Food Lion case will serve to remind the public that sometimes journalists should be allowed to tell a small lie in order to expose a large evil.
