Bill Chisholm — fyi
In the United States, we pride ourselves on having choices and making informed decisions. If you are like me, you want to make up your own mind about what kind of food to serve your family, you want to know what’s in it, and you want to know how it was made.
Last month, the Genetically Engineered Food Right to Know Act was introduced in both the Senate and the House.
Ask your Senators and Representative to support the GE food labeling bill!
Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not require labels to let us know if the food we buy has genetically modified ingredients. The FDA won’t require labels unless Congress tells them to.
That’s why 10 Senators, including Jon Tester (D-MT), Jeff Merkley (D-OR) and Barbara Boxer (D-CA), and 22 Representatives, including Peter DeFazio (D-OR) and Jared Polis (D-CO), have sponsored new federal legislation that would require the labeling of all GE foods.
Go to WORC’s Action Page and urge your Senators and Representative to co-sponsor the Genetically Engineered Food Right to Know Act and thank those who have already co-sponsored this legislation.
P.S. If you have any questions about this legislation, contact John Smillie, WORC’s Campaign Director.
