Don’t let Monsanto and Whole Foods kill GMO labeling

Comments Off on Don’t let Monsanto and Whole Foods kill GMO labeling

A first-of-its-kind law requiring foods sold in Vermont to declare whether or not they contain genetically modified crops is set to take effect on July 1st — unless a national law being considered by Congress passes first. The proposed national legislation would effectively override the regulations outlined by Vermont’s law, delaying any labeling changes for another two years and allowing food manufacturers to place QR codes or 800 numbers on their packaging rather than a plain-English disclosure about GM ingredients. Essentially, lawmakers are trying to pass a GMO labeling law that doesn’t require labels . Food Democracy Now is running a petition against the bill, which you can sign here . DON’T LET CONGRESS KILL GMO LABELING > Not only would this law make it more difficult to tell which foods contain GMOs , the new bill is entirely optional for the corporations it targets and there are no penalties for companies that fail to comply. The language of the bill has even been described as so vague that it would exempt about 85% of the GMOs currently on the market, including Roundup Ready crops owned by Monsanto, which are bred specifically to be sprayed with the weedkiller glyphosate , which has been linked to cancer by the World Health Organization . Related: Vermont Set to Make Mandatory GMO Labeling a State Law The fact that Congress is attempting to override Vermont’s new law is troubling enough, but for many grassroots groups, what’s going on behind the scenes is even more disturbing. According to Food Democracy Now , major natural and organic companies have suddenly changed their tune and sided with the new bill rather than supporting Vermont’s much clearer requirements in a last-minute deal. Among those Food Democracy Now names as “selling out” are Whole Foods Market, Stonyfield Farm, and members of the Organic Trade Association. Related: Hawaii’s Big Island Bans All GMO Crops and Biotech Companies Whether or not you personally believe GM crops pose a threat to human health, people who have concerns about how these plants are grown or the business practices of companies like Monsanto have the right to know what’s in their food and make purchasing decisions accordingly. A number of environmental groups around the country and Senator Bernie Sanders are rallying against this last-minute attempt to undermine Vermont’s lawmakers. If you’d like to send a message to the US Senate protesting this legislative deal, sign the petition now. Via Food Democracy Now Images via Pixabay ( 1 , 2 )

Whole Foods Market Requires Suppliers to Label Products with GMO Ingredients by 2018

Comments Off on Whole Foods Market Requires Suppliers to Label Products with GMO Ingredients by 2018

Whole Foods customers asked for it, and they got it. Last week at the  Natural Products Expo West ,  Whole Foods Market announced that by 2018, all of their suppliers must either make their products with ingredients from non-GMO verified sources or they must clearly label all products as containing GMO ingredients. Of course, while consumers would rather see the change occur immediately, Whole Foods explained that the 5-year timeframe is to allow their suppliers to adjust to the demands. In a press release, Whole Foods noted: “We are putting a stake in the ground on GMO labeling to support the consumer’s right to know. We are stepping up our support of certified organic agriculture, where GMOs are not allowed, and we are working together with our supplier partners to grow our non-GMO supply chain to ensure we can continue to provide these choices in the future.” READ MORE > Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: genetically modified objects , genetically modified organisms , GM food , GMO , GMO foods , GMO labels , GMO transparency , Natural Products Expo West , organic foods , whole foods , Whole Foods Market
