Do you care about what's in the food you eat?

Did you know that the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is on the brink of approving genetically engineered salmon? This will be the first genetically engineered animal on supermarket shelves in the United States. It's engineered to produce hormones year-round to grow at twice its natural rate.

And the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) may soon approve a new type of herbicide-resistant corn that will encourage the use of more chemicals in our food supply.

Americans want to know how their food is produced. That's why a record-breaking 900,000 people have already submitted comments to the FDA in favor of labeling genetically engineered foods – we hope you'll join them today. Will you help to reach one million by the March 27th deadline?!

First, check out this new infographic from the Just Label It campaign. Then take 30 seconds to submit your comment to the FDA in support of labeling and share the image with your friends and family on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and by email.
