Petition of Support for Mandatory GMO Labeling in New York State
Foods produced from or containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) may contain new substances or have purposeful or inadvertent compositional changes which have the potential to cause a variety of health problems. Sadly, consumers are not advised which products contain GMOs and therefore cannot make informed decisions. Many people are regularly consuming GMOs without knowing it. Therefore, we the undersigned call upon elected leaders in New York State to pass a law making it mandatory that foods produced from or containing GMOs be labeled.
