Dear Governor Cuomo, New York State Senators, and Assemblymembers:
I have a right to know what is in my food. Genetically engineered foods (GMO foods) are pervasive in the U.S. food system yet largely untested, possibly harmful for humans to eat, and unlabeled. I deserve the right to be able to make informed choices when choosing foods to buy for myself and my family. I urge you to stand up for my rights as an American and support (and cosponsor) Assembly bill A.617 and Senate bill S.485, which would require the labeling of genetically engineered foods offered for retail sale in New York.
