Star Trek’s evil, genetically engineered supervillain, Khan, could be lurking in your cereal box – and you wouldn’t even know it!
OK, maybe not Khan himself. But like Khan, more than 70% of the foods we find in our grocery store have been genetically engineered, so they exhibit special traits not found in nature. While we don’t yet know the effects of this new technology, Americans should have the right to know what they’re eating and feeding their families.
Over 1.2 million have already joined the fight for food transparency. Help spread the word on Facebook and Twitter, and fill out the form below to join millions in telling the FDA to label genetically engineered foods.

Label genetically engineered foods!
Dear Commissioner Hamburg,
I am writing to urge the FDA to require the mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods. I have a right to know about the food I eat and what I feed my family.
In America, we pride ourselves on having choices and making informed decisions. Under current FDA regulations, we don’t have that choice when it comes to GE ingredients in the foods we purchase and feed our families. Labeling is essential for me to choose whether or not I want to consume or feed my family genetically engineered foods.
I hope you will listen to me and the other 93 percent of the American public who want mandatory labeling. Please show your support for the interests of the American people by labeling genetically engineered foods.
