FDA Discounts More Than a Million Signatures On GMO Labeling Petition JLI infographic final march27.jpg 3300%C3%973000

The FDA is with Monsanto and agribusiness. They don’t want you to know what’s in the food you eat.

On Tuesday, the FDA reached a deadline for the “Just Label It” petition calling for GMO to be included on food content labels.

The FDA said it had not made a decision and needs more time to think it over.

It also said the petition with over a million signatures – far larger than any other the agency has ever received – counts as only one signature.

“The agency says that if 35,000 people, for instance, sign their name to the same form letter it only counts as one person or ‘comment.’ And if tens of thousands sign a petition, they are only counted as one ‘comment,’ too,” reports the Chicago Tribune [1].

Every major poll on genetically engineered food labeling is overwhelmingly supported by Americans [2] despite efforts by Monsanto and the GMO industry to convince them otherwise.
