Just Label It
The FDA has given us the 180-day “due date” for submitting comments to the petition: March 27th.
With less than a month left, more than 850,000 Americans have told the FDA to label genetically engineered foods. That’s more comments to FDA on a food issue than ever before! With just under a month to go, we’re within reach of the goal of 1 million comments.
This is the big push, and we need all hands on deck to cross the finish line. Can we count on your help to reach 1 million during this pivotal month?

You can’t argue with consumers’ right to know what’s in our food. That’s why 9 out of 10 people support labels for genetically engineered food. But, money talks, and companies like Monsanto that have gotten rich hiding GMOs in our food are already on the attack in California, where a movement to label GMOs is working to get the issue on the November 2012 ballot.
Monsanto found an ally in Dan Morain at the Sacramento Bee who tried to find fault with the CA Right to Know/Label GMOs coalition. Here are Morain’s points, along with our rebuttal.
