Sign the Petition to

President Barack Obama

93% of voters want genetically engineered food labeled. When you were running for president in 2007, you promised us you'd do that. It's right here in this video: http://youtu.be/zqaaB6NE1TI

You also promised: "We'll tell ConAgra that it's not the Department of Agribusiness. It's the Department of Agriculture. We're going to put the people's interests ahead of the special interests."

But, once you were elected, you packed your administration with Monsanto's men and approved several new genetically engineered crops (sweet corn, ethanol corn, sugar beets, alfalfa, and lawn grass) -- without measures to protect organic and non-GMO farmers, or our food supply, from contamination, without regulations to protect human health from increased pesticide use, and without labels to let consumers know what we're eating.

Get Monsanto's men out of your administration! It's time to ask these men to resign:

Tom Vilsack, USDA Secretary

Michael Taylor, Senior Adviser to the Food and Drug Administration Commissioner on Food Safety

Rajiv Shah, USAID Director

Islam Siddiqui, Chief Agricultural Negotiator for the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative

Thank you for reading this. I still have hope you can do the right thing.

Signed,

Organic Consumers Association
