From Care2 Petition Site:

Genetically engineered foods — also called genetically modified organisms or GMOs — are plants and animals that have been genetically altered in a lab. Many of these genetic changes haven’t been adequately tested and various environmental problems they’ve caused have been well documented. 

These genetically engineered foods sit on our grocery store shelves without any sort of indication that they’ve been altered. Allowing genetically engineered foods to enter our food supply — and the natural world — without our knowledge makes our food and ecological systems deeply vulnerable to the special interests of agribusiness. 

A bill called the Genetically Engineered Food Right to Know Act was recently introduced in Congress. It requires labeling notifications for all genetically engineered foods in the United States.

You have the right to know what’s in your food, so please take action now. Tell Congress to protect our food and pass the Genetically Engineered Food Right to Know Act.
