Keep harmful radioactive waste out of our children's food, whether conventionally grown or organic! Say Bye Bye Becquerels!

To be delivered to FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg, The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

The US limit for carcinogenic radioactive cesium is 1200 Bq/kg in food. Japan, which is still suffering a triple meltdown, has a limit of 100 Bq/kg. Both of these limits are way too high to protect our children. We are asking that the limit be reduced to 5 Bq/kg for all food, nutritional supplements and pharmaceuticals--lower when technology allows-- and that we quickly and responsibly institute widespread, transparent testing to ensure this limit, particularly in the wake of Japan's catastrophic and ongoing radiation releases from Fukushima Daiichi's triple nuclear meltdowns.
There are currently 10,803 signatures. NEW goal - We need 15,000 signatures!

Petition Background

An official Citizen’s Petition to the FDA has been filed to put important safeguards into motion (please copy this link to your browser to view petition ~ http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=FDA-2013-P-0291-0001) where your comments are welcome.

Please help support that effort by signing and sharing this SignOn companion petition widely. We must begin to know how much radiation is in the food we are serving our families, so we can decide what is safe to feed them. All protections in our food supply have been fought for and won. We can win this too.
