Big Food Sues Vermont

Big Food GMA (Grocery Manufacturers Association) is suing the state of Vermont over its GMO labeling law 35 days after it passed.  In short, the lawsuit states that manufacturers are being forced to convey messages that they do not want to convey as well as infringing on the federal standard of nutritional labeling.  Organic consumer groups are now raising money for the defense of the labeling law in Vermont.  This move was widely anticipated , and its verdict will influence the labeling law across the country.  The GMA has supported anti-labeling campaigns across the country in state by state votes with large corporate funding that trumps the organic industry dollars.

You can also support labeling by boycotting the Big Food brands who are members of the GMA like PepsiCo, Coca Cola, Nestle, Kraft, General Mills, ConAgra (Alexia, Pam Spray), Campbells, Smuckers, Kellogs, McCormick, and more.   For more dish on the GMA, check out this Dr. Mercola article.  Additionally, you can check out the GMA website directly and decide what to support for yourself.
