Will Obama Fulfill His 2007 Promise to Label GMOs?Quicklink submitted by Joan Mootry Permalink
|Back in 2007 during his campaign tour, Obama addressed the serious issue of GMOs with a promise that he would immediately "let folks know' whether or not they are consuming GMOs through proper labeling. Now more than 5 years later, Obama has not addressed the issue of GMO labeling -- at least not in the way you might think.
Instead, Obama appointed the former Vice President of Monsanto Michael Taylor as a senior adviser to the FDA back in 2009. Taylor is currently a Deputy Commissioner for Foods for the FDA.
