In case you don’t know, food producers are not required to tell us if our food has been genetically modified.

This past weekend, I went into my local health food store and asked about some tomatoes that looked awfully red and good for this time of year.  The produce manager didn’t know.  He said they have no way to be sure if something is GMO‘d.  Then he did his best to convince me that it “probably wasn’t GMO’d.”
This is wrong.  We have a right to know.  So thanks to Goldmine Natural Food Company, I was informed of this petition to the FDA:
“A petition has been filed with FDA calling for labels on food that have been genetically engineered. More than 500,000 Americans have already submitted comments in support of the petition, but we are not done yet! Let your voice be heard. Please take a moment to submit your support for the petition.”

Americans have the right to know what’s in their food. Tell the FDA to label GMO food. Also, if you haven’t seen it already, I recommend reading my post from January 23rd, “What’s Good Enough to Eat?” and watching the video linked at the end for a basic understanding of the subject.
