Effort to Bring GMO Labeling to Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania is one of dozens of states now working on statewide initiatives and legislation that would require labeling of food containing Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO). A new group called GMO-Free PA is working with Food and Water Watch and other groups to make such a labeling law a reality. There is still great uncertainty surrounding the risks of GMO foods, in large part because the research so far conducted has been inadequate in scope, duration, and independence, as the vast majority of the research available has been conducted or funded by the companies selling the GMO crops. These companies use their patent rights to limit independent research on their products. Visit GMO-Free PA on Facebook, and sign the Food and Water Watch petition demanding labeling of GMO foods in Pennsylvania.
