If the activists hate it, it must be good
Activist groups are calling on Congress to kill the bipartisan Roberts-Stabenow GMO food labeling bill that already passed the Senate last week.   And they're coming unglued:

  • "July 1st should be victory day for GMO labeling.   But a couple of Senators made a backroom deal at the last minute to kill all state GMO labeling laws." -- ConsumersUnion
  • "Senators Debbie Stabenow and Pat Roberts have struck a deal aimed at continuing to keep consumers in the dark about the ingredients in the food they eat." -- ALTERNET
  •  "Stand with us and Friends of the Earth to oppose #RoundUp and protect #monarch #butterflies."  - Just Label It!
  •  "Regardless of whether GMOs are ultimately found to be safe to eat, the WHO IARC findings raise serious questions about whether they are safe to grow." -Gary Hirshberg, Stonyfield Farms
  • "This bill is nothing but a gift to Monsanto and Big Food, weakening consumer protections and deliberately keeping us in the dark about what the industry is putting in our food." - ConsumersUnion

Here are the FACTS

  • It's settled science.  GMO's are safe to eat.
  • The bipartisan Senate labeling bill blocks Vermont's law and stops any other state from passing its own mandatory labeling law.
  • The bill keeps labels off of meat or dairy products produced from GMO-fed animals.
  • The Senate bill gives USDA - not FDA - the authority to determine what on-package disclosure will look like.
  • The Senate bill protects future plant breeding techniques from being stigmatized as GMO.
  • The Senate bill saves the average consumer hundreds of dollars per year at the grocery store.

Aren't you tired of activists demonizing biotech crops and trying to change the way you farm?  That's why it's time to ACT
