Sesame Petition reaches 4,000 signatures; Now formally backed by CSPI, forcing FDA to respond!!
Nov 19, 2014 — Thanks to your help, we now have OVER 4,000 SIGNATURES on this petition to the FDA to require sesame disclosure on food labels. The petition also got the attention of the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI). They have now converted it into a more formal petition -- one to which the FDA IS LEGALLY REQUIRED TO REPLY!! Thank you CSPI!
Our petition is an exhibit to the CSPI's formal petition, so the more signatures we have, the more effective it will be. Let's break 5,000!
PLEASE CONTINUE TO SHARE THE LINK TO THIS PETITION AND SPREAD THE WORD! Here's the link to use: ow.ly/EuZSe
Here's the CSPI press release: ow.ly/EuYa2
Thanks for your support.
FYI, the CSPI does these types of petitions all the time and has a lot of experience with them. They tell me that the good news is, their petition is very likely to succeed. They say that the bad news is that it may take a few YEARS to take effect. So please be patient with your continued support.
