Will Quaker Oats Conceal or Reveal GMOs?
Did you know that Quaker’s parent company, PepsiCo, is spending millions to keep you and your family from knowing what’s in your food? Quaker is one of the Big Food companies using their deep pockets to lobby against mandatory GMO labeling. Through the trade association, the Grocery Manufacturers Association, they’re supporting a bill in Congress we call the DARK Act – because it would Deny Americans the Right to Know whether our food has been genetically engineered. Sign the petition below toask Quaker to join us and to support mandatory FDA labeling of GMOs!
It’s hard maintaining that honest image when they’re stopping consumers from knowing what’s in their food. GMO crops have led to huge increases in herbicide use, which contributes to an array of threats to the health of people and the environment. And in case you missed it, the World Health Organization recently labeled the main herbicide used on GMO crops as probably carcinogenic. People all across the country are fed up with being kept in the dark. That’s why I’m working with Just Label It to bring the Conceal or Reveal campaign to Quaker’s doorstep. I have already joined in the fight for the right to know what’s in our food.But we need your voice, too.
Please sign the petition: Ask Quaker to support mandatory FDA labeling of GMOs, stop funding anti-mandatory labeling efforts, and stand up against the DARK Act!
