For the sake of your children and your health Act Now!

DEADLINE DECEMBER 16: Tell the USDA You Don’t Want a GMO Apple!

Take Action:

No GMO Apples!The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is poised to approve the first genetically engineered apple. The “Arctic Apple®” is engineered for the purely cosmetic purpose of preventing browning after it’s been sliced. Scientists say the technology used to create this new frankenapple is untested and inherently risky.

Unless the USDA heeds consumers, environmentalists and apple growers who are speaking out against deregulation of the Arctic Apple, the first GMO apple could soon turn up in fast-food restaurants, school cafeterias—even baby food. With no labels to warn consumers.

The Arctic Apple poses a risk to human health, a risk to the environment and a risk to conventional and non-organic apple growers.
