I am a #ConcealOrReveal Labeling Advocate. All opinions are my own.The survey showed that nearly 70 percent of moms were less likely to purchase products from Quaker and its parent company PepsiCo when told that the company funneled millions of dollars into campaigns to deny consumers the right to know about GMOs. Nearly 93 percent of moms want Quaker to label GMOs and 80 percent want Quaker to stop funding anti-GMO labeling efforts.
Last week I shared that Quaker is spending millions to make sure we are all in the dark when it comes to knowing if GMOs are in our food. Well since then a poll has been released that was given to moms around the country.
And 81 percent of moms surveyed said they’d be less likely to purchase a brand’s products if they found out that a company was using GMO food ingredients that contribute to the increased use of toxic pesticides. Glyphosate, the primary herbicide used on GMO crops, is considered a probable human carcinogen by the World Health Organization.
Three thousand elementary schools in the U.S. are near GMO corn and soybean fields where glyphosate is sprayed, putting America’s youngest students at risk of significant toxic herbicide exposure.
In a matter of just a few weeks, well over 100,000 concerned consumers have added their names to a petition calling for Quaker and Pepsi to support a federal law that would make GMO labeling mandatory. Just Label It is calling on Quaker to support the FDA in using its authority to mandate GMO labeling nationwide.
Join us and sign the petition to tell Quaker to support a federal law to make labeling GMOs mandatory!
