EWG Encourages Us To Tell Congress We Want GMO Labeling
The Environmental Working Group is at the forefront of keeping Americans in the know about our food. The GMO debate is still ongoing, but no matter what the result, we still have the right to know if GMO ingredients are in the products we buy. The DARK Act would not only allow companies to use GMOs without disclosing, but would also not allow brands to state on the label that they DO NOT use them. We have the right to no if our food is non toxic & EWG is helping us do that. Sign their petition and vote for a transparent future.
