Action Alert: USDA Asking For Public Comments On Proposal That Would Allow GMO Companies To Self-Regulate

CS Sherin, July 25, 2019

This action alert comes from Cornucopia Institute.

Mega monopoly corporations (like Dow, Bayer-Monsanto, etc) that control much of the chemical, seed, pesticide, agriculture and GMO industry around the world, may be allowed to operate without a third party to regulate standards, experiments and more. These are mammoth conglomerations that already have the reputation of hiring science-focused academics to write propaganda for them, even when harm from their practices is quite evident.

If these rules pass, all manufacturers of GMOs won’t have to report experiments and other activity to the USDA or to organic farmers who are nearby. Not only would this make new GMOs that are introduced unsafe, it is an unethical and unjust proposal.

Currently, the USDA will be taking comments from the public regarding the proposed rules (Docket No. APHIS-2018-0034-0037), where the USDA would allow self-regulation for GE companies and crops.
