Today we're delivering over one million comments in support of labeling genetically engineered foods to the FDA – because of people like you. By submitting a comment, emailing your friends, posting on Facebook, and talking to your coworkers and neighbors, you made this possible.

Comments were submitted by Americans from all 50 states – people from tens of thousands of different communities around the country. This record-breaking achievement proves that Americans care about how our food is produced and the right to know what's in our food.

Thank you for everything you've done so far – and for all that you'll continue to do in the weeks ahead.

With deep gratitude,

– Alex, Nancy, Naomi, Sue, and the entire Just Label It team

Re. the subject matter in general and in order to gain further insight into the Essential Corporate Culture and True Nature of "Monsatan" in particular, please see the following insightful documentaries :

  • "Controlling Our Food : The World According To Monsanto" : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYO2k_o16E0 + alt. link : http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6262083407501596844 ("A 2004 documentary film which makes an in-depth investigation into unlabeled, patented, genetically engineered foods that have quietly made their way onto grocery stores in the United States for the past decade. It voices the opinions of farmers in disagreement with the food industry and details the impacts on their lives and livelihoods from this new technology, and shines a light on the market and political forces that are changing what we eat.") & ...

  • "David versus Monsanto" : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwfzYDKd8jk ("Imagine that a storm blows across your garden and that now, genetically-manipulated seeds are in your crops. A multi-national corporation pay you a visit, demand that you surrender your crops - and then sue you for $200 000 for the illegal use of patented, GM seeds. In this definitive David and Goliath battle, one farmer stands up against a massive multinational, and their right to claim ownership to a living organism.").

As consumers we hold a lot of power. As people became aware of pink slime, the word spread. And no one wants shit food. Now the pink slime industry is going under, opening a new door to better beef practices and proper labeling of beef.

Monsanto is going down next! It might take some time to get the word out, but it is a battle we will win. As consumers we hold a lot of power!
