Petition:FDA: Require Labeling of Genetically Engineered Foods
FDA: Require Labeling of Genetically Engineered Foods
Have you been eating genetically engineered (GE) food? Most of us have without knowing it.
Despite valid concerns about their threat to public health there is currently no labeling requirement for GE foods, which are appearing on supermarket shelves with increasing frequency. From 60 to 70 percent of processed foods available in American grocery stores likely contain some genetically engineered ingredients, according to the Congressional Research Service. These ingredients are prevalent in many everyday products like breakfast cereals, cookies, chips, sweetened soda, frozen meals and more.
We have a right to know what we are eating, and to purchase foods we have no doubt will be healthy. Sign the petition to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) calling for products that include genetically engineered ingredients to disclose this information on the label.
