December 2nd, 2015By an overwhelming margin, American voters say consumers should have the right to know if their food is genetically modified, with 89 percent in support of mandatory GMO labeling, according to a new national poll. Nearly the same number of consumers would like to see the labels in an easy to read format.
November 19th, 2015The Food and Drug Administration’s decision to approve the sale of genetically modified salmon underscores the need for a national, mandatory standard for the disclosure of genetically engineered foods and ingredients (GMOs). The decision marks the first time a genetically modified animal has been cleared for human consumption.
Consumer and Environmental Groups Call on General Mills to Stop Funding Anti-GMO Labeling Efforts and Support Consumers’ Right to Know
October 26th, 2015Consumer and environmental groups representing hundreds of thousands of consumers launched an advertising campaign directed at General Mills calling on the company to respond to consumer demands for the right to know what is in the food they buy and eat and to stop funding anti-food labeling efforts. General Mills, known for cereal brands like Cheerios and Wheaties, has spent millions of dollars fighting efforts to require labels on food products containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
September 5th, 2015Big biotech companies like Monsanto and big food companies like General Mills and Pepsi have spun the science to fight our right to know what’s in our food and how it’s grown. Nine out of 10 Americans — regardless of age, income or even party affiliation — simply want the right to know if GMOs are in their food, the same right held by consumers in 64 other nations. The Senate and the Obama administration should look at all of the science — including the clear and convincing evidence that GMO crops have fueled an explosion in weed killers linked to cancer — not just Monsanto’s “science" and reject legislation passed by the House to block state and federal GMO labeling.
July 23rd, 2015House passage of what critics call the DARK Act, for Deny Americans the Right to Know, shows a disregard for Americans’ basic rights, Just Label It said today.

July 1st, 2015One hundred twenty-five (125) U.S. CEOs and business leaders from across the country called on President Barack Obama to keep his 2007 campaign pledge to give Americans the right to know what is in their food by directing the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to require food companies to label products that contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The letter also asks the President to oppose H.R. 1599, referred to as the “Denying Americans the Right to Know” or “DARK” Act, legislation that seeks to prevent consumers from knowing whether or not their food contains GMOs.
June 22nd, 2015Yesterday’s action by the International Agency for Research on Cancer to label the chemical 2,4-D a possible human carcinogen means that both active ingredients in Dow AgroSciences’ Enlist Duo herbicide for GMO crops are human cancer risks.
June 18th, 2015Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) has found new ways to keep Americans in the dark about whether their food contains genetically modified ingredients, or GMOs.
May 20th, 2015Armed with new national survey results showing overwhelming support for mandatory labeling of genetically modified foods (GMOs), top executives from Ben & Jerry’s, Chipotle, Stonyfield Farm, Patagonia and other companies today urged lawmakers to oppose legislation designed to block labeling of GMO foods and called instead for mandatory national GMO labeling.
May 14th, 2015The following is a statement from Gary Hirshberg, chairman of the Just Label It campaign and chairman and co-founder of Stonyfield Farm, reacting to news that USDA will create a voluntary certification for products that do not contain GMOs.
April 28th, 2015WASHINGTON –The nation’s first law to require labeling of foods made with genetically engineered ingredients can proceed following a ruling yesterday by the U.S. District Court for the District of Vermont that keeps the pioneering law on track to go into effect in July 2016.
April 13th, 2015The Independent Natural Food Retailers Association and its members have demonstrated their continued commitment to consumers’ right to know whether the food they buy contains genetically modified ingredients by donating more than $60,000 to the Just Label It campaign.
March 31st, 2015Sen. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) today urged the Environmental Protection Agency to consider the opinion of an expert panel convened by the World Health Organization that glyphosate, the main herbicide used on genetically engineered crops is “probably carcinogenic to humans.”
March 26th, 2015Several leading public interest organizations today urged the Obama administration to “weigh heavily” the World Health Organization’s recent conclusion that glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic to humans.”
Another Attempt to Keep Consumers in the DARK: Rep. Pompeo Reintroduces Bill to Preempt State GMO Labeling Laws
March 25th, 2015Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., is expected to file legislation in Congress to prevent states from giving their citizens the right to know whether the food they buy was made with genetically modified ingredients, or GMOs.
March 20th, 2015The national Just Label It campaign is calling on the Food and Drug Administration to require labeling of genetically modified foods (GMOs) in light of today’s announcement that glyphosate, the main ingredient in the Roundup herbicide widely used on GMO crops, is now considered a probable carcinogen by the U.N.’s International Agency for Research on Cancer.
February 13th, 2015Today’s announcement that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is allowing two genetically engineered apple varieties onto the U.S. market emphasizes the need to label GMO food, said Katrina Saves of Just Label It.
February 12th, 2015Chef Tom Colicchio joined Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) today as they reintroduced bipartisan legislation that would give Americans more information about what’s in their food and how it was produced.
December 10th, 2014Scott Faber, vice president of government affairs at EWG, urged a congressional panel today to oppose legislation that would deny consumers information about what’s in their food and how it was grown.
