Bronx event: GMO food labels in NY?

Policy and Action from Consumer Reports

Demand your right to know in New York

Join us tomorrow at a public hearing in the Bronx to stand up for your right to know whats in your food. Show lawmakers that you want genetically engineered food labeled, so you have a choice in what you eat.

Dear NAT,

The majority of Americans want to know if our food is genetically engineered. And 64 countries including China and the entire European Union already require GE foods be labeled.

So why is industry fighting so hard to keep genetically engineered off the label in New York? Are they worried you might actually know what youre buying, and choose food, fish and meat that hasnt been altered from its natural state?

A bill has been introduced that would give New Yorkers the right to know what theyre buying and eating. And a hearing will be held TOMORROW in the BRONX so we can show lawmakers and industry that New Yorkers want genetically engineered food labeled.

Help us pack the hearing room with people who support GE labeling. You can bet industry will be there trying to kill the bill. Also, Consumer Reports own scientist, Dr. Michael Hansen, will also be testifying about the potential risks of GE foods.

Bronx hearing on labeling GE food
10 a.m.,Tuesday July 30,
Lehman College, East Dining Room
250 Bedford Park Blvd West
Bronx, NY 10468

Let’s make sure this public hearing is a success by filling the room with New Yorkers demanding your right to know. Thank you for standing with us in support of common-sense labeling.
