One million reasons to label genetically engineered foods… literally

Congratulations to Just Label It (JLI), which just surpassed 1,000,000 signatures asking the FDA to label genetically engineered foods. Just Label It is a national coalition of 500 diverse organizations dedicated to the mandatory labeling of genetically engineered (GE) foods, also referered to as genetically modified, or GMOs. In less than 180 days the group compiled a record number of public comments.

To build on the million signatures, the JLI folks today also revealed national survey results showing that more than nine out of 10 Americans support the labeling of genetically engineered food. Not 9 out of 10 Republicans, or Democrats or Independents. Americans in general are showing overwhelming support for GMO labeling, and that’s some pretty encouraging news.

Check out the infographic below for more details on what the survey was able to capture, and congrats again to Just Label It:
