Tell Senators Warren and Udall: FDA’s Voluntary GMO Labeling is Good for Monsanto, Bad for Consumers

Whose Side Are They on, Anyway?

It’s a pretty safe bet that if Monsanto and the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), two of the largest funders of campaigns to defeat GMO labeling, are in favor of something, that “something” won’t be good for you.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) have signaled (1) support for FDA guidance on voluntary labeling of GMOs. A move to protect consumers? Hardly. After all, Monsanto (2) and the GMA (3) also want the FDA to finalize its voluntary guidance on GMO labeling. And that wouldn’t be true unless the biotech and food industries thought there was something in it for them.

What might that something be? Perhaps the path to preemption of states’ rights to label GMOs. Or the end of certified non-GMO labels. Or maybe both.

Sometimes it makes sense to contact senators outside your own state, especially when they’re advocating for a law that could hurt all consumers.

This is one of those times. Please sign our petition below, and forward it widely. Then pick up the phone and ask Senators Warren and Udall to side with you, not Monsanto and the GMA, by supporting state and federal mandatory GMO labeling laws.
