As consumers, we have a right to know how the food we buy is produced, including whether it’s genetically modified. Otherwise, we can’t make informed choices about what’s best for us and our families.
It’s estimated that 60%-70% of processed foods likely contain some genetically engineered material. Plus over 80% of corn and soybeans grown in the U.S. are genetically engineered. Not to mention that the FDA is preparing to approve genetically engineered salmon, which would be the first genetically engineered animal on the market in the United States. But as consumers, we won’t know the difference without mandatory labeling.
The United States is one of the only developed nations not to require the labeling of genetically engineered foods. Even China and Russia label them!
Submit a comment to the FDA demanding that genetically engineered foods be labeled. Please contact the FDA today. They need to hear from more people like you.
