This post was created as part of the Just Label It campaign in which I am a financially compensated Labeling Advocate. The opinions are my own and based on my own experience.
A lot of us are really paying attention to what our family is eating these days. We want to feed our family healthy meals and what’s best for them, but it can be hard to know what our food has in it if companies are not required to label it. I don’t know about you, but I like to know that my meat is hormone free and that my produce hasn’t been genetically modified. I don’t know what the long term effects will be from eating those, as it’s not been around that long, so I prefer to stick to the safer side.
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 to ask 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. But we need your voice, too.
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!
