Biotech researchers petition FDA to ban ‘deceptive’ Non-GMO Project butterfly logo

| September 25, 2018

The most authoritative science and technology think tank in the United States has filed a petition against the Non-GMO Project’s butterfly campaign in the hopes of getting the label banned from food packaging. The Information Technology and Innovation Foundation said that its effort is being done to combat the false claims and allegations against biotechnology made by the Non-GMO Project.

The label is widely despised in the agricultural sector as unscientific and intentionally deceitful and divisive.

Specifically, the science foundation is calling on the the FDA commissioner to issue a regulation prohibiting the use of the term “Non-GMO” on consumer foods and goods and requiring distributors to omit any “Non-GMO” term or claims on their labeling.

“The ‘Non-GMO’ Project butterfly campaign deceives consumers through false and misleading claims about foods, food ingredients and their health and safety characteristics,” said ITIF Senior Fellow Val Giddings, who is leading the petition. “The campaign constitutes misbranding under the law, and the FDA should act in the best interest of consumers and protect them, as the law demands, against the confusion spread by these false claims.”

  1. Fear mongering. The number of Roundup cases lined up by shyster lawyers advertising on late night TV is up to 8000 now. I trust some judge or judges will see this at the 50,000 foot level and finally indict the organic foods cartel. They fully deserve a 100 billion dollar fine for 30 years of lies, malicious myths and conspiracies fed to consumers, and their funding of nasty hateful activist groups, and the half billion dollar total cost of that face plant fail mandatory GMO labeling campaign that voters rejected repeatedly in several states. The total cost of that cluster fuck was too high, and THEN they turn around and bitch about industry spending so much to defend GMOs! Worst of all was the $160,000 cash bribe for the low cancer risk glyphosate designation, passed to them from the organic industry by a USRTK lawyer. Well the IARC is in deep doo doo now and the lawyers don’t have that cornerstone for their cases any more.
