The following is an edited excerpt.

Chobani yogurt, one of the country’s fastest-growing CPG brands, is the latest to come under scrutiny from an activist group over its use of GMOs.

The move represents one of the first attempts by US GMO activists to target dairy brands in addition to the cereal, bakery and grocery brands that have previously come under fire.
