Help Get GMO Labeling on the Ballot This Fall


News coverage and legislation in Congress are highlighting the issue of genetically engineered foods nationwide.  GMOs, or Genetically Modified Organisms, are also garnering attention as a hot issue in Colorado communities and households.  The Just Label It federal campaign has been collecting signatures to petition the FDA to issue GMO labels, but has not been successful up to this point.  In the absence of any federal action, what happens at the state level will be the nation’s response to GMOs for the moment.
