Oregon set to ban GM salmon plus mandate GMO labeling

People are rising up and demanding that the foods, like “GM Salmon”  are properly identified and honestly labeled. And the constituency of the state of Oregon is no exception, where a trio of legislative bills recently introduced would require that all genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) be properly labeled, as well as prohibit the import and sale of “GM salmon”.  Meat-Seafood-Package-Wrap-Shopping-Grocery-GMO H.B. 2175, whose chief sponsor is Representative Deborah Boone (D-Cannon Beach), provisions that all foods containing or made with genetically-engineered (GE) material be properly labeled in the state of Oregon. Any food products made with or containing GMOs that are not properly labeled beginning on January 1, 2014, will be deemed misbranded, and its manufacturer held liable for breaking the state’s food labeling requirements. In the same vein, H.B. 2530 prohibits “GE salmon” not only from being cultivated and farmed within the state of Oregon, but also from being imported and sold there. As we reported in years past, the “Frankensalmon,” known officially as “AquAdvantage,” was approved by the FDA against the will of the people, and without adequate safety studies proving the fish was safe for human consumption and that it would not contaminate wild fish. GMOs destroy health, and people want to know where, when they are being used in the food supply The Oregon House Committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources recently heard testimony on three different bills. And supporters of GMO labeling throughout the state have been busy spreading the word about the lack of proper GMO safety testing, and the fact that GMOs have been linked to causing organ damage, gastrointestinal problems, allergies, and even cancer. I feel the FDA and others, keep a lot of things secret from us. I try to eat as healthy as possible and try to watch what I put into my body, including vitamins and supplements. How can we do this if we don’t know what all is being put into our families food?
