Costco is one of the largest retailers of salmon and seafood in the U.S. and is one of the last large retailers that hasn’t yet made a commitment to keep GMO salmon off its shelves.

The FDA may still decide to approve genetically engineered salmon. But, by ensuring that the world’s largest retailers say no to GMO salmon, we can send a strong message that there is no market for it. Tell Costco to join its competitors and just say no to GMO salmon! Every voice counts!

Don’t Let Monsanto Kill GMO Labeling!

From Food Democracy Now!

FDNStopHR1599MPA230_1Breaking: Last week the House passed a dangerous new bill, H.R. 1599, to kill states’ right to pass common sense GMO labeling laws. Now we need your help today to stop the Ultimate Monsanto Protection Act in the Senate! In a stunning display of arrogance, the House voted 275 to 150 to pass a bill into law that would kill mandatory state GMO labeling efforts and replace it with a gutted version that will preempt states’ rights and give the illusion of oversight. Now, this Orwellian named bill, the “Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act” (H.R. 1599) would make it illegal for states to pass common sense GMO labeling laws and prohibit states or counties from banning or regulating GMOs in any way.

A vote in the Senate could take place as early as September and we need all hands on deck to stop the Ultimate Monsanto Protection Act and convince members of the Senate not to violate states’ rights. This plan is so devious that it radically speeds up the approval process for new GMO crops; limits the FDA’s and USDA’s ability to conduct premarket safety reviews; declares GMO foods “safe” and allows GMOs to be labeled “natural”.

If the Senate passes the bill, the President could sign it into law this fall to prevent Vermont’s GMO labeling bill from ever taking effect! This is a blatant power grab to deny Americans their basic right to mandatory GMO labeling and protect flawed GMO products – and we can’t allow them to get away with it. We need your help today. Every voice counts!
