It is now legal for Coca-Cola to hide genetically modified ingredients — like GMO corn and sugar — behind confusing barcodes. This means people like you will need to pull out a smart phone just to know what is in the food on your grocery list.

USDA’s new 2020 labeling guidelines give corporations the option to label GMO ingredients with “QR” barcodes only accessible with a smartphone and special app. USDA also left a huge loophole open by allowing “highly refined” ingredients like GMO sugar and oils go unlabeled.

When this change happens, Coca-Cola — a major purchaser of GMO sweeteners — will be able to leave consumers in the dark.

This dangerous lack of transparency is why the Center for Food Safety is asking Coca-Cola to label the GMOs in its products on the package. If you agree, please sign and share today.

We believe the proposed USDA guidelines are a direct result of lobbying by powerful GMO industry leaders designed to make it harder for families to know what is in their food. The impact will be felt even harder for the 100 million consumers — 1 in 3 — without smartphones or access to a broadband internet connection.

USDA’s own study found that QR codes are inherently discriminatory against the one-third of Americans who do not own smartphones or those without access to the internet. And even for those with smartphones and internet, most people don’t associate QR codes with food ingredients and most consumers have trouble scanning them.

Tell Coca-Cola not to hide GMO labels behind QR codes that you need a smartphone to access.

To urge Coca-Cola to label GMOs in text on the package, add your support today.
