URGENT ACTION ALERT! WE NEED 1,000,000 SIGNATURES ON OUR PETITION BY
THANKSGIVING TO SAVE OUR FOOD SUPPLY!
HAVE YOU SIGNED THIS PETITION YET?
CONSUMER RIGHT TO KNOW - ONE MILLION IN 98 CAMPAIGN
PETITION TO SECURE THE MANDATORY LABELING OF ALL GENETICALLY ENGINEERED
Submitted to the President of the United States, Congress, USDA and FDA
New substances are being introduced into our foods via a technology
called genetic engineering. A growing number of scientists and
physicians are voicing concern over the possible health and
environmental risks from these foods. Current laws and policies do not
require the food industry to label these new genetically engineered
foods. Without labels consumers lose the freedom to choose what they
will eat and feed their families. This petition upholds the right of
consumers to make informed choices.
As a citizen of the United States of America, I strongly urge the
passage of legislation and policies to mandate the clear and accurate
labeling of all foods derived from, processed with, containing or
consisting of genetically engineered organisms before they are released
into any and all commercial markets.
TO SIGN JUST SEND THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE TO
"Add my name to the Consumer Right to Know Petition for the mandatory
labeling of genetically engineered foods."
MAKE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR NAME, ADDRESS AND DATE AND SEND IT OFF TO:
<firstname.lastname@example.org>. Names will only be used for this petition, not
for other mailings or commercial purposes.
