“We are asking the FDA to change a decades-old and out-of-touch policy,” Andrew Kimbrell, executive director of the Center for Food Safety, said in the release. “Today’s consumers are more informed than ever, and they have a right to know about the foods they are purchasing and consuming. We want the FDA to require labeling on foods intentionally produced using genetic engineering.”
The release said a 2010 Thomson Reuters survey indicated 93% of Americans support labeling of genetically engineered foods.
Coalition members include the American Nurses Association, Center for Food Safety, Consumer Federation of America, Consumers Union, National Cooperative Grocers Association and the Union of Concerned Scientists.
