Want GE Food labeled? Here's your chance

I know you care about the food you eat, so I thought you'd be interested in this action alert from the Center for Food Safety to urge FDA to label genetically engineered (GE) food.

The Center for Food Safety has filed a formal legal petition with FDA demanding that the agency require the labeling of GE foods and is spearheading a drive with the Just Label It Campaign to direct one million comments to the FDA in support of the petition. The comment period is set to close on March 27th and we’re less than 10,000 comments shy of our goal of one million comments. Can you help us reach it?

GE foods are required to be labeled in the 15 European Union nations, Russia, Japan, China, Australia, New Zealand, and many other countries around the world. A poll released by ABC News found that 93 percent of the American public wants the federal government to require mandatory labeling of GE foods. Yet the U.S. is one of the only developed countries in the world that doesn’t require labeling.

Please send your comment to FDA and President Obama in support of mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods. Click here to send your comment: http://bit.ly/LabelGEFood
