Stop the sneak attack on GMO labeling!

If the U.S. government has its way, the powerful intergovernmental group Codex may soon make it impossible to label food "GMO-free" for any country in the world.  On May 3rd, 2010 Obama officials from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) will travel to a special meeting to propose that Codex reject common sense labeling laws regarding GMO food products. Stand up for your right to know what's in your food and stop this sneak attack on GMO labeling, please sign below:

Here is the letter that we will send to FDA Deputy Commissioner of Food Michael Taylor and USDA Deputy Secretary Kathleen Merrigan:

Dear Mr. Taylor and Dr. Merrigan,

I demand that the U.S. delegation to the Codex Committee on Food Labeling meeting follow sound science and existing U.S. law and FDA policy. The delegation must drop its stated opposition to Codex provisions allowing the labeling of genetically engineered food. Further, the U.S. delegation should generally express positions consistent with current U.S. laws and FDA policy which recognize a clear 'difference' between genetically engineered foods and other foods.

Sincerely,

[Your name]
