Dear Green American,
The Food and Drug Administration just made a really bad decision.
The FDA approved the sale of genetically engineered (GE) salmon.
Even worse, the agency has said the GE fish does not need to be labeled, so consumers won’t even know that it’s genetically engineered.
This decision puts our fish stocks, environment, and health at risk and ignores the concerns of millions of American consumers, grocery stores, fishing groups, environmental groups, restaurants, and chefs.
The fight doesn’t stop here. Green America will continue to fight for our right to know when foods have GMOs, and against the creator of GE salmon, AquaBounty.
But right now, an even bigger GE decision looms on the horizon.
As I write to you today, Monsanto is at Stage 2 of a four-stage process to bring two varieties of GE wheat to production. By engineering wheat to be tolerant of powerful agricultural herbicides (like Monsanto’s Roundup), they hope to be able to spray all the toxic chemicals they want on fields and still grow wheat.
We need your support now to make sure the FDA does not make another terrible mistake in approving unlabeled GE wheat.
Millions of people around the world rely on American-grown wheat as a primary source of calories and protein. They shouldn’t have to endanger their health just to feed their families … and neither should you and I.
There is still time to stop GE wheat and its associated pesticides from poisoning the American Heartland and your body--but we must act now.
I’m not giving up and I know you won’t either. Especially not when our GMO Inside campaign has been achieving a series of critical victories against some of the world’s biggest companies.
We pushed General Mills to remove a GMO ingredient from Cheerios … we achieved additional big anti-GMO wins with Hershey, Chobani, Campbell’s, and Similac baby formula … I believe we can prevent GE wheat from taking over if we rise up now, stand strong, and say “No” to GMOs once again!
Please help us achieve another big victory against GMO crops and stop GE wheat from taking over our farms and our food supply by sending your most generous, tax-deductible donation to Green America.
We simply have to stop GE wheat from entering our food system and we’re going to need your help to win.
