GE Food Labeling Initiatives Gaining Momentum

Earlier this week, 55 Members of Congress signed on to a letter that calls on U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Margaret Hamburg, M.D. to require the labeling of genetically engineered (GE) food.

So far, more than 950,000 people have submitted comments in support of labeling since CFS filed the legal petition in October 2011.
