The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) wants to let companies like Monsanto-Bayer, DowDupont and Syngenta (now owned by ChemChina) “regulate” their own genetically engineered products—under a proposed rule the USDA euphemistically calls the “Sustainable, Ecological, Consistent, Uniform, Responsible, Efficient,” or “SECURE” for short.
DEADLINE AUGUST 5: Tell the USDA to do its job: protect consumers, not the biotech industry!
If we don’t stop this rule in its tracks, biotech companies will definitely be more secure—secure in the fact that they will be allowed to unleash any genetically engineered organism into the environment or into the food system.
No oversight. No independent testing. No accountability.
That doesn’t sound like a “SECURE” deal for consumers, or for the environment.
