Tell President Obama and the FDA to label GE food! Sign the petition today!

Dear President Obama and Food and Drug Administration Deputy Commissioner Taylor,

According to a 2011 ABC News poll, 93 percent of Americans want the government to require labeling of genetically engineered (GE) foods. Sadly, public policy has failed to effectively regulate GE technology or require labeling that protects a consumers’ right to know what’s in their food. I urge you to put in place requirements to label GE foods.

Thank you:

Genetic engineering (GE) refers to a set of technologies used to change the genetic makeup of cells to produce novel organisms that exhibit a desired trait, such as pesticide resistance. Since their market debut in 1996, GE foods, also referred to as genetically modified organisms (GMOs), have been commonplace on supermarket shelves. As more research emerges on the negative health, societal, and environmental impacts of GE foods, they are coming under increasing scrutiny. Yet, public policy has failed to effectively regulate GE technology or require labeling that protects a consumers' right to know what's in their food. 

Take action today by following the steps above!
