Dear 5849376,

In an effort initiated by Michelle Obama, the Food and Drug Administration is updating the look and content of the Nutrition Facts labels on the food we buy, but there's one critical and glaring omission: the new plan doesn't include labeling of genetically modified food.

It's no surprise. The Grocery Manufacturers Association, Monsanto, and others are spending a lot of money to prevent labeling of GMOs. Some members of Congress, whose campaigns are backed by the Koch brothers, are even working to ban mandatory labeling of GMOs at the federal level.

But now we have a real shot at convincing the FDA to include GMOs as part of this food labeling update.

Consumers have a right to know what's in their food. In fact, more than 90% of Americans support mandatory labeling of GMOs, but the United States is one of the only industrialized countries in the world without mandatory GMO labeling laws. Some states like Vermont have already passed laws requiring GMO labeling, but with this FDA action, all consumers in every state would know whether or not their food contained GMO ingredients.

The FDA has extended the comment collection period to August 1, so this is our chance to convince the federal government that nutrition labels must include GMO information.
