Just Label It Campaign
Do you agree with a half million Americans that GMO products need labeling?
The "Just Label It!" campaign is a collective effort by the American people supporting the labeling of genetically engineered foods. According to the Just Label It campaign website, polls by MSNBC, ABC News, and Washington Post have all suggested that over 90% of the American public believe genetically modified organisms (GMO's) in our food must be labeled; however the FDA is yet to act. Of the many reasons Americans want GE foods labeled, the most common and outstanding is the right to know what they are eating and how it affects them.
The FDA has not reacted to this outcry as some might think. Because of past acts in place, there are no requirements to label GMOs, only materials that may change taste, smell or affect other senses. The act's are decades old and out-dated for today's technologies and markets. The "Just Label It!" campaign is aiming to oust the aging regulations and put the power of knowledge in the consumers hands.
At Rumiano Cheese Company we are proud of our efforts to bring the first ever verified non-GMO cheese to the market. Due to the pristine climate and region of organic farming in Crescent City, CA, Rumiano Cheese Co. is able to create some of the most wholesome cheese in the world.
You too can participate by demanding the FDA regulates GMO labeling. Act now by joining over 500,000 Americans in contacting the FDA to require the labeling of genetically engineered foods.
