It’s baffling to me that it’s even up for debate whether we as consumers have the right to know what’s in our food and where it comes from. And that’s essentially what’s at the core of this – companies can keep on making GMO food products and the FDA can keep approving them for sale, but need to be able to make an informed decision about whether or not they want to actually buy a GMO item (be it salmon, vegetables, packaged products, etc.). And unless products are properly labeled, there is no way to know. Which doesn’t sit right. If you agree, sign the petition to the FDA.
