In its latest underhanded (desperate?) move to thwart the anti-GMO movement, Big Food’s lobbying arm has petitioned the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to rule that food companies can officially label their GMO-contaminated products as “natural” or even “all natural.”

To be clear, food companies are already doing this. Even though the FDA says the word “natural” means “nothing artificial or synthetic . . . has been included in, or has been added to, a food that would not normally be expected to be in the food.” But now the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), representing more than 300 food manufacturers and trade groups, wants the FDA to guarantee food companies the right to continue misleading consumers with its fraudulent labeling schemes.

So far the FDA has dodged the question of whether or not food companies are lying to customers when they say their products are “natural” even when they contain genetically engineered ingredients. But in July, facing a barrage of lawsuits from consumers furious that food companies have been allowed to hide GMOs in popular “natural” brands, the courts asked the FDA to weigh in. Big Food wants to be sure the FDA rules in favor of the junk food industry.

More than 43,000 concerned consumers have already signed our petition to the FDA, launched earlier this year. If you haven’t already, please sign today!
