U.S. to Prevent GMO Labeling Worldwide
We have just a few days to stop the U.S. government from preventing the labeling of genetically modified foods (GMOs).
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have adopted a pro-corporate position that laughably claims labeling GM/GE foods creates the "false" impression that "that the labeled food is in some way different from other foods.”  Even worse, the current U.S. draft position paper declares that mandatory labeling laws such as they have in Europe are “false, misleading or deceptive.“ 
On May 3rd, Obama administration officals from the FDA and USDA will travel to Canada for a special United Nations meeting to tell the world to adopt the same position, preventing other countries from rightly labeling GMOs as different from fresh, natural food.
Sign our petition now before the deadline on Monday.
We demand that you abandon your wrongheaded, corporate food position that GMOs are somehow the same as non-GMO foods. We have the right to know what's in our food and what we are feeding our families.
Current U.S. Law and FDA policies recognize a difference between genetically modified foods and other foods. This should not be up for reconsideration.
