Label Genetically Engineered Foods in Florida

To be delivered to The Florida State House, The Florida State Senate, and Governor Rick Scott

Petition Statement

As a resident of the state of Florida, I urge you to pass state legislation that would require genetically engineered (GE) foods to be labeled.

Genetically engineered foods have become pervasive, are largely untested, and are potentially unsafe. I deserve the right to know whether the food I buy is genetically engineered or not.
There are currently 3,129 signatures. NEW goal - We need 4,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Just as food labels list fat, sodium and sugar, labels should tell the buyer whether or not the product includes genetically engineered ingredients. Anything less is misleading and leaves consumers in the dark about the food they're eating.

GE foods are unlabeled, untested and potentially unsafe, yet most people don't even know they are eating them. Sign the petition to tell Florida's lawmakers to support the labeling of genetically engineered foods.
