Petitioning Costco

Require all vendors to identify genetically modified food.

Prop 37 failed to pass in California, because Big Agra convinced voters that labeling GM foods would cause their costs to sky-rocket. Since almost all foods are already labeled, and this would just be an added notation, this claim is hard to believe. The real reason agra-corporations don't want to label GM foods is that they know that the American public does not have confidence in the testing that has been done, which would result to an even larger share of their market going to Organic farmers. I've attached a link to an article about GM crops that will serve to explain the dangers. Please add your name to this petition. Costco is one of the largest food distributors in our country. I believe that this requirement would give them a competitive advantage, while giving consumers a choice. http://www.responsibletechnology.org/gmo-education
