(NaturalNews) Only a few more weeks remain before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stops accepting public comments about a petition filed by the Center for Food Safety (CFS) seeking the FDA's compliance with requiring mandatory labeling of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs). And with more than 850,000 comments already submitted, according to Just Label It!, truth in labeling advocates everywhere are hopeful that the petition will reach its target of at least 1,000,000 signatures by the March 27 submission deadline.
In conjunction with more than 450 other food freedom advocacy groups, organic food brands, and farmer and seed organizations, CFS filed a petition with the FDA on October 12, 2011, urging the food safety agency to stop delaying and begin enforcing mandatory GMO labeling. Citing near-unanimous support for mandatory labeling among all Americans polled in several national surveys, as well as the more than 20 other nations around the world that already require GMO labeling, CFS is demanding that the FDA take action.
And to spur along the effort, the Just Label It! campaign has been organizing a petition-signing drive to get at least 1,000,000 unique signatures in support of the petition by March 27, 2012, which is the FDA-established deadline for the petition. Filed as Docket # FDA-2011-P-0723-0001, the petition correctly states that failure to label GMOs is misleading individuals and families everywhere, and that pursuant to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), the FDA has a lawful mandate to require that GMOs be labeled.
In preparation for its final push to gather the target number of petition signatures, Just Label It! will be releasing an "infographic" on March 7, 2012, that explains the issues surrounding GMOs and why they need to be labeled. When this infographic is released, we will post a link to it here on NaturalNews so you can share it with your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and anyone else you come into contact with. The infographic will also be linkable through Facebook and Twitter as well.
