FROM OUR FRIENDS AT CREDO

gmodangerThe fight for mandatory GMO labeling just took a dangerous turn that could leave millions of Americans in the dark about genetically modified ingredients in their food.

Monsanto and Big Food, along with long-time food industry ally U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, are pushing Congress to adopt a compromise to the GMO labeling battle: Voluntary high-tech QR code labels that require consumers to scan with their smartphones to know whether or not food products contain GMO ingredients.

These so-called “smart labels” will make it more difficult – or impossible – for many people to find if GMO ingredients are in their foods. That’s because most Americans won’t take the time to scan a label, don’t know what a QR code is, or don’t have the required technology to access the labels in the first place.

We must pressure Congress and Secretary Vilsack to reject this food industry gimmick and demand simple, mandatory, on-package GMO labels on our food.

It’s clear that Monsanto and the food industry are fighting to protect their bottom line by making it harder for consumers to know what’s in their food with this QR code scheme. What’s more, there’s currently no proposal for those without smartphones, typically low-income, disabled, or elderly consumers, to access this information.1

As Scott Faber, the executive director of the pro-GMO labeling group Just Label It, put it, “Consumers shouldn’t have to have a high-tech smartphone and a 10-gigabyte data plan to know what’s in their food.”2

Public pressure on Big Food to label GMO food is working. Last month, processed food giant Campbell Soup Company reversed course and announced it would label GMO foods nationwide and not increase prices, a common argument against mandatory labels, adding, “We put the consumer at the center of everything we do…[and] we have always believed that consumers have the right to know what’s in their food.”3

With poll after poll showing nearly every American is in favor of mandatory GMO labeling,4 the Obama Administration and Congress should make it easier for us to know what’s contained in our foods, not harder.
