Labeling Petition Dear President Obama,
We represent the 9 out of 10 Americans who enthusiastically support your campaign promise to require mandatory labeling of genetically modified (GM) foods. We want to be clear about our comprehensive labeling expectations, so they are not diluted by lobbyists for corporate interests.
“GM” or “Derived from GM” All foods in which any single ingredient is intentionally or accidentally derived from genetically modified plants or animals must be labeled. (The European Union law provides a working example of this.)
“Fed” or “Injected” In addition, all products derived from animals that have been fed GM feed or injected with GM hormones (such as rbGH) must also be labeled.
Immediate Action This issue has greater bipartisan support than perhaps any other campaign issue. We want to know which foods contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs) now. Please announce that labeling GM food is on your first year legislative agenda, so we can have a choice!
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
