GMO labeling call-in week

This article was originally published in February 2015

The week of February 9 through
13, let’s ask President Obama to make
good on his campaign promise to
label genetically engineered foods.

In 2007, as a presidential candidate
campaigning in Iowa, Obama
said, “We’ll let folks know if their
food has been genetically modified
because Americans should know what
they’re buying!” See his campaign
pledge at truthinlabeling.org.

Please ask your congressional
representatives to hold Obama to
his promise. Call:

  • Senator Patty Murray:
    202-224-2621
  • Senator Maria Cantwell:
    202-224-3441
