The Rising Food Movement Continues the Fight for ‘Right to Know’ GMO Labeling

Story at-a-glance -

  • Historically, food has not featured heavily in politics unless or until there was a major food safety issue. That is now changing, with the fight for labeling of genetically engineered foods leading the way as people are becoming aware that there’s something wholly unnatural in the food that we’re not being told about
  • More evidence suggests that the US federal government is not protecting our food supply and are allowing it to be used for a giant science experiment—The USDA released a final report absolving the biotech industry of contamination of non-genetically engineered (GE) seeds with their products from other fields, concluding that organic and other non-GE farmers should simply buy insurance to protect against GMO contamination
  • After the failure to pass Prop. 37 in California, the field-of-play now moves to Washington State, where the people's initiative 522, “The People's Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act,” will require food sold in retail outlets to be labeled if it contains genetically engineered ingredients
  • Vermont has also created a Right to Know GMO Campaign
