We have the Right to Know

Plainly and simply consumers have the right to know upfront what they are purchasing and eating.

The recent revelation that the ground beef we consume is likely to contain “Pink slime” a.k.a. “finely textured lean beef” is an example of how far the F.D.A. has strayed from its original purpose of informing and protecting America’s consumers. In addition to eating this “finely textured lean beef,” the American people are consuming meat products with have been treated with Ammonium hydroxide without their knowledge.

This and similar occurrences illustrates the need for new food labeling requirements more in line with the original intent of the F.D.A. and the Meat Inspection Act orchestrated in the days of Theodore Roosevelt. Please, for yourselves, your children, and your nation sign this petition demanding that your representatives enact legislation and guidelines requiring the labeling of all food ingredients, additives, and processing agents. We have a right to know.
