A New Federal Labeling Bill

Tell Congress to Support the New Federal Labeling Bill

In the United States, we pride ourselves on having choices and making informed decisions. Under the current FDA policy, we don't have that choice when it comes to genetically engineered (GE) ingredients in the foods we purchase and feed our families. But thanks to your tireless support, Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Congressman Peter DeFazio (D-OR) will introduce new Federal legislation next week that would require the labeling of all genetically engineered (GE) foods; the first labeling bill to be introduced in the Senate in over a decade! Tell your Senators and Representative to Cosponsor the GE food labeling bill!

Without mandatory labeling of GE foods, consumers are being left in the dark about the foods we are purchasing and feeding our families. Sixty-four countries have mandatory labeling policies for GE foods including South Korea, Japan, the United Kingdom, Brazil, China, South Africa, Australia, the European Union, and many others. The United States is one of the only developed countries in the world that doesn't require labeling. Yet there is overwhelming public demand—consistently near 95%—for the labeling of GE foods. Already in 2013, 53 GE labeling bills have been introduced in 26 states, including Hawaii, Washington, Indiana, Missouri, and Vermont, with more expected by year's end.

New GE Labeling Bill Being Introduced in Congress!

Send an email to your Senators and Representative to co-sponsor the new federal GE labeling bill.
