Food Lobby Threatens to Sue Any State that Tries to Label GMOs

The Organic Consumers Association is reporting that the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association — the mega corp. lobby group that represents 300 companies and way more than just grocery stores — is using a talking points memo to basically misinform and intimidate our legislators with threats of lawsuits should they even attempt to back a GMO labeling law in their state

This is the same organization that is petitioning to allow GMOs to be considered “natural” on food packaging (http://articles.mercola.com/sites/art…),

And the same group that is trying to get a weak voluntary federal law passed to preempt the adoption of any meaningful labeling legislation at the state level (http://truthstreammedia.com/federal-l…).

Their top lobbyist said the reason these companies are spending over $70 million to defeat state labeling is because telling you GMO is in your food would “misinform” you (http://www.politico.com/story/2014/01…).

Apparently GMOs are so awesome and wonderful, the companies that sell them are doing everything they can to keep people from knowing it.
