No more labeling of rBGH-free milk

Monsanto issued a press release asking the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to punish dairies that label their milk "rBGH-free." Monsanto has a history of trying to intimidate independent-minded dairies and bottlers who do not want use their growth hormones. Obviously, Monsanto feels threatened by increasing consumer demand for rBGH-free milk, the increasing number of dairies that label milk "rBGH-free", and the increasing number of farmer who have rejected rBGH, and is attempting to use the Federal Government as tool of intimidation.

Find out more information and sign a petition demanding that Monsanto:

- Stop intimidating small family farmers.
- Stop force-feeding untested and unlabeled genetically engineered foods on consumers.
- Stop using billions of dollars of US taypayers' money to subsidize genetically engineered crops - cotton, soybeans, corn, and canola.
