Tell USDA to get GE labeling right

Action Network Email r1 PAOV, tell USDA that their silly, misleading GMO label doesn’t cut it. r1 Stand up for your right to know

Dear PAOV,

Labeling of genetically engineered (GE) food is finally moving forward, as required by law. But so far, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is making a mess of it.

Their proposed happy-face “BE” (bioengineered) labels border on the ridiculous, serving more as a marketing tool for the GE/pesticide industry than an actual right-to-know label.

USDA is accepting comments on their proposal until July 3. Tell them their silly, misleading label don’t cut it.

The vast majority of GE crops are engineered to tolerate increased use of herbicides — fueling a dangerous pesticide treadmill, as weeds develop resistance and ever-more-toxic chemicals are needed.

Families have a right to choose whether or not to support this failing system.

Sign onto our petition today, and we’ll deliver it to USDA by the July 3 deadline.

Their proposal would also restrict the use of the common terms “GE” and “GMO.” And they wouldn’t require that processed foods with GE ingredients be labeled.

But our partners in DC tell us this deal is far from done, and that pressure on USDA could have a real impact.

Tell USDA their “BE” labeling proposal is a sham, and they must do better.

Thank you for taking action!
