    Every family has the right to know what’s in their food!

    Posted November 16th, 2012 by

    Stars like Emmy Award winner Michael J. Fox and moms like Julie Bowen and Ali Larter have joined the fight to label genetically engineered (GE) foods.

    The stars are featured in a new Just Label It (JLI) video calling for the FDA to require labeling of GE foods.

    Fox, Bowen and Larter are joined in the video by 24 other entertainers and advocates, like Chevy Chase, and Just Label It (JLI) Chairman, Gary Hirshberg.

    Bowen, a mother of three sons, shows her support for labeling by revealing a sign in the video with the message: “Every modern family has the right to know what’s in their food!”

    As a mom, she gets it. And it’s a message many of us can relate to.

    It’s great to see mothers like Bowen, Larter, Kimberly Van Der Beek and Anne Heche stand up for their right to know what’s in the foods they are feeding their families, as it’s a right already given to moms in dozens of countries around the world, even in China, Russia and India, but not yet here in the United States.

    This message sums up the argument JLI has been making throughout the country: every American deserves the right to know about their food and whether they are eating or serving their families food
    that has been genetically engineered.

    JLI is petitioning the FDA to update its 20-year-old voluntary guidelines and require labeling for GE foods, giving a voice to all Americans who are concerned about what is going into the foods they are feeding their loved ones. Today, more than 1.2 million Americans have joined the petition. I hope you will too, so that together, we can have this same basic right enjoyed by citizens around the world.

    Thank you for sharing this. This labeling movement is huge and needs to keep its momentum! There is also a white house petition going around that I think can’t hurt to sign and share. They are at 13k signatures and need 25k by Dec 9 – Do you mind sharing with your fans? I was shocked when I found out all the GMO’S in baby formula! It is too late for my babies but maybe not theirs!
