Stores Should Clearly Identify Food Genetically Modified and From Animal Feeding Operations

As concerns about the health, environmental, ethical, and socio-economic hazards of Genetically Modifed Organisms (GMOs) and industrial-scale factory farms or AFOs (Animal Feeding Operations) rise, consumers have an inalienable right to know whether the food we are purchasing  likely contains GM  ingredients or comes  from animals confned in AFOs.

Up to 90% of U.S. soybeans, corn, cotton, canola, and sugar beets are now genetically engineered and routinely inserted into human and animal foods with no labels or safety testing.

Approximately  80%  of  current  grocery  food  items  contain  GMOs;  while according to U.S. Department of Agriculture statistics, the majority of beef, pork, poultry, dairy, and eggs come from AFOs.

According to the US EPA: 

Animal Feeding Operations (AFOs) are agricultural operations where animals are kept and raised in confined situations. AFOs congregate animals, feed, manure and urine, dead animals, and production operations on a small land area. Feed is brought to the animals rather than the animals grazing or otherwise seeking feed in pastures, fields, or on rangeland.

Our stores should clearly identify all non-organic food products containg soy, corn, cottonseed oil, canola, sugar beets or GM growth hormones with a  label or shelf sign that says "May Contain GMOs" and  identify all meat, dairy, and eggs that come from AFOs with a label or shelf sign that says "AFO."

As a citizen concerned about the health, environmental, ethical, and socio-economic hazards of Genetically Modifed Organisms (GMOs) and industrial-scale factory farms or AFOs (Animal Feeding Operations), I feel strongly that consumers have an inalienable right to know whether the food we are purchasing likely contains GM ingredients or comes from animals confned in AFOs.

Up to 90% of U.S. soybeans, corn, cotton, canola, and sugar beets are now genetically engineered and routinely inserted into human and animal foods with no labels or safety testing.

Approximately 80% of current grocery food items contain GMOs; while according to U.S. Department of Agriculture statistics, the majority of beef, pork, poultry, dairy, and eggs come from AFOs.

Considering the growing concern over GMOs and AFOs, your store should clearly identify all non-organic food products containg soy, corn, cottonseed oil, canola, sugar beets or GM growth hormones with a label or shelf sign that says "May Contain GMOs" and identify all meat, dairy, and eggs that come from AFOs with a label or shelf sign that says "AFO."

Thank you for your attention to this important consumer concern.
