This is one of the cutest campaign I have ever seen.
WHAT IS GENETICALLY ENGINEERED FOOD, AND WHY LABEL IT?
Genetically engineered (GE, sometimes referred to as GMO) foods are untested, unlabeled, and potentially unsafe. A majority of processed foods include GE ingredients, which have not been tested for long-term impacts on human health and environmental safety. What’s more, the Food and Drug Administration does no independent safety testing and instead relies on data submitted by biotechnology companies. And, because foods containing GE ingredients aren’t required to be labeled, consumers don’t even know when they are eating them.
GE foods can pose risks to consumers from potential allergens and toxins, but those are not currently disclosed. But just as labels list fat, sodium and sugar, they should tell the buyer whether or not the product includes potentially harmful GE ingredients. Consumers have a right to know if their food is genetically engineered.
Prop 37 Means Simple, Clear Labels That Won’t Cost You a Dime
Prop 37 gives us the right to know if our food has been genetically engineered. It helps us make the right food choices for our families by putting a simple label on the groceries we buy and telling us if our food has been genetically engineered.
