The Michelle Obama GMO Campaign

Victory! The creator of this petition declared the campaign a success. You can still sign the petition to show support.

Because of your expressed interest in children, food, gardening and nutrition, we strongly urge you to persuade President Obama to support mandatory labeling of all genetically engineered food products and an immediate moratorium on the release of new GMO crops. If you are eating anything with corn, soy, canola, sugar beets, or cottonseed that is not organically grown, it has most likely been genetically engineered. There is growing evidence that GMOs are harmful to human and animal health. For more information:

Why is this important?

President Obama has taken his team of food and farming leaders directly from the biotech companies and their lobbying, research, and philanthropic arms. Despite massive public opposition, last year the USDA streamlined its approval process for new genetically engineered seeds and crops, cutting in half the time it takes for them to enter the market. Proposition 37, the California ballot initiative for the labeling of GMO food, was narrowly defeated after being outspent by the opposition nearly 6 to 1, with a campaign of lies and misleading information. It is time we take a national stand against GMOs in food and agriculture.
