Brazil gets it right and outlaws GMO products without labels
A court in Brazil has ordered Nestlé to impose mandatory labelling for all its products in the country highlighting more than 1% genetically modified (GM) ingredients. For the whole story go here:
The U.S. can certainly take a lesson from Brazil who just ruled in Court that Nestle had broken the law for failure to post GM soy in a cookie sold in the country. The company was served notice of a stiff fine and told it must stop doing this.
The Brazilians got it right. California, Vermont and other states who have GMO issues on the table for the fall, take note. Lets hear it for Brazil and lets follow suit.
The Brazilians have named several states to be GMO free and do not permit any GMO soy, wheat or other products to be grown there. Why? Brazil has a large interest in producing products for the European market which outlaws GMO.
Lets make this an international case. JUST SAY NO TO GMO. LIKE THE BRAZILIANS DO.
