The Power of Grassroots Activism: Are Wal-Mart and Big Food Lobbying the FDA for a GMO Labeling Law?

High-level executives from some of the U.S.'s largest food corporations are meeting with the FDA behind closed doors this week to lobby for a mandatory GMO labeling law. Could it be that bad press and consumer backlash have dulled the enthusiasm of these former biotech cheerleaders? Or is Big Food just cozying up to the FDA so it can derail the growing organic and anti-GMO movement and finagle a federal labeling law so toothless it won't be worth the ink it takes to sign it?
Either way, it's a promising sign that the grassroots movement to label GMOs, with its multi-pronged strategy that includes consumer boycotts of companies and organic "Traitor" brands, is gaining traction. OCA Director Ronnie Cummins analyzes Big Food's latest move and what it could mean for the future of GMO labeling laws.

Tell Kellogg's & Kashi: 'I'm Buying Nature's Path Instead!'

TAKE ACTION: Tell Kellogg's you're boycotting Kashi and all the Kellogg's brands
Kellogg's Kashi brand cereals have been in trouble before. Now it turns out that the brand's parent company, Kellogg's, donated $791,000 to defeat Prop 37, the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act. Just one more reason to boycott the brand, along with the fact that the Cornucopia Institute tested Kashi's GoLean cereal and found it to contain 100% GMO soy. And the fact that consumers have filed a class action suit against Kashi alleging Kashi deceptively advertised its GoLean and TLC products as "all natural" when in fact they contain GMOs.
Let Kellogg's know - by signing the boycott and posting to the company's Facebook page - that you won't support the companies and brands that don't support consumers' right to know! If you're looking for certified organic, non-GMO cereals why not try Nature's Path? This loyal, true-blue organic company donated a whopping $607,000 to support Prop 37.

Tweet this: Because @Kelloggs_US spent $790,700 against my right to know about GMOs - I'm buying @NaturesPath instead #Boycott
Post this on Kashi's Facebook page: Kelloggs spent $790,700 against consumers right to know about GMOs. Boycott all Kelloggs products and replace them with Organic non-GMO Nature's Path. Share this post and learn more here:
