USA is a 'Free Country' ??? Not with GMO's it Ain't!
The recent vote in the U.S. Senate on the GMO labeling issue would be left to the states... Thumbs Down... No Can Do! (The U.S. Constitution doesn't quite agree btw.)

Here are the stats on food labeling in the U.S.

"In the United States, Sanders said, food labels already must list more than 3,000 ingredients ranging from high-fructose corn syrup to trans-fats.

But unlike 49 countries around the world, including all the countries of the European Union, the United States does not require labels identifying genetically engineered ingredients."

see: "U.S. Senate Bars GMO Labels as March Against Monsanto Revs Up"

[link to ens-newswire.com]

Basically, our esteemed U.S. Senators apparently sided with one of their most generous benefactors...

"Labeling Food and Ingredients Developed from GM Seed
At-A-Glance: Our View on Food Labeling

The safety of our products is our first priority, and multiple health societies, hundreds of independent scientific experts and dozens of governments around the world have determined that foods and ingredients developed through biotechnology [or genetic modification (GM)] are safe.

Each country establishes its own food labeling laws. Within the United States, the government has established clear guidance with respect to labeling food products containing GM ingredients; we support this approach. We also support food companiesí choices to voluntarily label food products noting certain attributes (e.g., organic) based on their customersí preferences and provided the labeling is truthful and not misleading.

We oppose current initiatives to mandate labeling of ingredients developed from GM seeds in the absence of any demonstrated risks. Such mandatory labeling could imply that food products containing these ingredients are somehow inferior to their conventional or organic counterparts."

So, if you agree that a "Free Country" is a place where the big corporations are free to "fire-at-will" at their chosen targets, then the U.S. stands out as the light of the world for freedom on this planet.

Conversely, if you think a "Free Country" where people are free to choose whether to eat genetically modified foods, you're apparently up against the wall on this one..,

You see, if you can't tell whether a given food product contains GMO ingredients, you can't make a choice as to what foods to by.

If you like, you can call your senators and congratulate them for the great service they performed for their constituents. (Which isn't you, btw.)
