Will Quaker Oats Conceal or Reveal GMOs?

This post was created as part of the Just Label It campaign in which I’m a compensated Labeling Advocate. All opinions expressed are my own.

As a parent I want to know what is in the food that my family eats. Do you want to know what is in your food? Most of the world does know. Most countries, including all of Europe and Asia, require GMO labeling, but not America. Many large food companies label GMOs in their products abroad, so you would think they would at home too, but they don’t.

Did you know that Quaker’s parent company, PepsiCo, is spending millions to keep you and your family from knowing what’s in your food?
Unfortunately, Quaker is one of many Big Food companies using their deep pockets to lobby against MANDATORY GMO labeling. Through the trade association,  the Grocery Manufacturers Association, they are supporting a bill in Congress that we call the Dark Act – because it would Deny Americans the Right to Know whether our food has been genetically engineered.

Will Quaker Oats Conceal or Reveal GMOs

It’s hard for Quaker to maintain that honest, wholesome image when they are stopping consumers from knowing what’s in their food. To me, the more transparent a company is with their practices, the more consumers, like you and I, will trust them.

GMO crops have led to huge increases in herbicide use, which contributes to an array of threats to the health of people and the environment.  And in case you missed it, the World Health Organization recently labeled the main herbicide used on GMO crops as probably carcinogenic.

People all across the country are fed up with being kept in the dark. In fact, 92% of Americans support mandatory GMO labeling and want to know what is in their food according to a recent Consumer Reports national survey.

That is why I’m working with Just Label It to bring the Conceal or Reveal campaign to Quaker’s doorstep. But we need your voice as well, to help support GMO labeling.

Sign the petition: Ask Quaker to join us and support mandatory FDA labeling of GMOs, stop funding anti-mandatory labeling efforts, and stand up against the DARK Act!
