U.S. Residents: Ask Congress to Support GMO Labeling Bill
In the United States, there are no laws requiring the labeling of genetically engineered "foods." While nearly everyone in North America has eaten such foods, a 2006 poll by the Pew Initiative reveals that only 26% believe that they have.
Millions worldwide - myself included - believe that food is best as nature intended, and that consumers have the right to know what they're purchasing. Please sign below to ask your Representative to co-sponsor H.R. 5577, the Genetically Engineered Food Right to Know Act.
I write to request your co-sponsorship of H.R. 5577, the Genetically Engineered Food Right to Know Act. This important bill would amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, the Federal Meat Inspection Act, and the Poultry Products Inspection Act to require that food that contains a genetically engineered material, or that is produced with a genetically engineered material, be labeled accordingly.
Like millions worldwide, I believe that food is best as nature intended, and that consumers have the right to know what they're purchasing. Please co-sponsor H.R. 5577 and help ensure that the history and content of our food are clearly and conspicuously labeled.
