The Monsanto Gang Rides

Posted By: Organic Consumers Association (campaign leader)
The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA)—Monsanto's Evil Twin—is pulling out all the stops to keep you in the dark about what's in your food.
The GMA plans to sue Vermont to overturn the state's new genetically engineered food labeling law, H.112. And it's pushing a bill in Congress that would take away states' rights to enact a GMO labeling laws, while legalizing the practice of labeling GMO foods "natural."
Monsanto, Dow, Dupont, Kellogg's, General Mills, Coca-Cola. These are just a few of the 300-plus members of the GMA. Combined, they own more than 6,000 brand name products, including foods, beverages, seeds, home and garden supplies, pet food, herbicides and pesticides.
You probably don't buy most of those products. But you may not be aware that many of your favorite organic and natural brands, like Honest Tea, Muir Glen, Odwalla, Kashi, Earthgrains, Santa Cruz and others, are owned by corporations that do belong to the GMA. Those corporations spent about $68 million to defeat GMO ballot initiatives in California (Prop 37) and Washington State (I-522). And they continue to fight against your right to know by supporting the GMA's effort to overturn states' rights to pass GMO labeling laws.
Who are the Traitor Brands? Take the pledge, and find out!
