Have you heard the news that earlier this month the first genetically modified animal was approved by the FDA? AquaBounty, a Massachusetts based biotech firm has created a genetically engineered salmon, designed to grow twice as fast as its conventional, farm-raised counterpart. The salmon received FDA approval earlier this month. Since genetically modified foods don’t require labeling in the US, consumers won’t know whether the salmon they’ve chosen is genetically modified or not.
Here at Little Duck Organics, we believe in complete transparency. We are proud of our ingredients and are committed to the thought that consumers have the right to know what’s in their food. Besides providing the purest organic ingredients, we’ve gone the extra step to get non-gmo verified. We are living in a time where GMOs are in as much as 80% of conventional processed food in the United States. We take pride that we offer terrific tasting products with the assurance they are entirely free from genetically modified foods.
If GMO labeling is important to you, make sure to follow the federal bill aimed at blocking the labeling of these foods. H.R. 1599, ironically named the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015, passed in the House of Representatives on July 23 of this year and now heads to the Senate., If passed into law, this bill would block states and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration from labeling foods that contain GMO’s.
