Tell Congress to Support the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act
In the spring of 2013, Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR) introduced the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act, bipartisan legislation that would require the FDA to label all genetically modified foods.
“Americans have the right to know what is in the food they eat so they can make the best choices for their families,” Senator Boxer said. “This legislation is supported by a broad coalition of consumer groups, businesses, farmers, fishermen and parents who all agree that consumers deserve more – not less – information about the food they buy.”
In fact, surveys have shown that more than 90 percent of Americans are in support of labeling GM foods. And while the Right-to-Know Act has attracted more than 50 co-sponsors from both sides of the aisle, Congressional leaders are looking for even more co-sponsors now in order to advance the bill.
Please call the office of your senators or representative today to ask them to co-sponsor this right-to-know legislation, or take our action below to send a message via e-mail. (Thank your Congress members if they already co-sponsored. See the list of co-sponsors below.) Feel free to edit our message to include relevant details such as your hometown and reasons for your interest in labeling GMOs, to make a more personal connection with your representative.
