A legal petition (Docket # FDA-2011-P-0723-0001/CP) has been filed with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) calling on the FDA to label genetically engineered (GE) foods. Become a part of this growing movement and tell the FDA that you believe we have a Right to Know what’s in our food. Post your comment on this petition today and make sure your voice is heard!
Justlabelit.org has a great list of 8 tips you can do to avoid genetically engineered foods….
1. Comment! Tell the FDA that you have the right to know what’s in your food.
2. Eat fresh! Eat more fresh vegetables and unprocessed foods.
3. Avoid the five products that are most likely to be genetically engineered: Corn, Soy, Canola, Cotton and Sugar made from beets (sugar from cane is NOT genetically engineered).
4. Look for the USDA Organic seal and buy organic – The National Organic Standards prohibit the use of genetic engineering.
5. Download the True Food Shopper’s Guide from the Center for Food Safety for a list of brands with products that claim to be made without genetic engineering.
6. Forward and share the Just Label It: Right To Know infographic with your friends and family.
7. Always ask! Call the manufacturer of your favorite foods and ask if they contain genetically engineered products. Let them know you do not support this if they do!
