Tell Impossible Foods: Declare your Independence from GMOs!

Tell OSHA to issue emergency safety standards to protect meatpacking workers and our food supply

Mandatory safety standards like paid sick days, handwashing stations, slower line speeds, and a minimum of six feet of space between workers can do a lot to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in meatpacking facilities where workers are currently crammed side-by-side on processing lines.

Protecting workers in meatpacking plants is important not just for the workers, but also for food safety. Unprotected and sick workers are more likely to make mistakes, making it more likely that tainted meat gets onto store shelves. The last thing we need during this pandemic is a major foodborne illness outbreak.

Rates of infection in counties with meatpacking plants are higher than the rates in 75 percent of U.S. counties. At least 64 meatpacking workers have died from COVID-19, and nearly 16,000 have been sickened so far.

Urge OSHA to issue emergency safety standards to protect meatpacking workers from COVID-19 so that we can all enjoy a safer food supply.

Protect Native Seeds!

The U.S. has lost 93% of its food seed variety in the last century.

Give thanks to native seeds and the seed diversity we still have.

Tell your senator to support The Native American Seeds Protection Act of 2019!

Tell Tillamook to Dump Dirty Dairy!

Tillamook claims to be the answer to Big Food and "Dairy Done Right," but in reality, the majority of the milk that goes into Tillamook dairy products comes from the nation's largest industrial confinement mega-dairy in Eastern Oregon—quintessential "Big Food." Tell Tillamook that you want it to drop Big Dairy for good.

Thank the Food Companies that Pledged Never to Sell GMO Salmon

FDA just lifted the import ban on GMO salmon.

But because Center for Food Safety members wrote to grocery stores across the country, more than 80 food companies have made commitments never to sell this GMO salmon. Now that GMO salmon is available to be sold in the U.S., their commitments not to sell this dangerous product will be put to the test.

Tell the stores that pledged never to sell GMO salmon how important that commitment is to you.

Tell Your Senators to Label Frankenfish

Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) introduced legislation, the Genetically Engineered Salmon Labeling Act (S.1528), which would require genetically engineered salmon to be labeled as "genetically engineered" or "GE."

Tell Congress to Support the Saving America's Pollinators Act!

Representatives John Conyers (D, MI) and Earl Blumenauer (D, OR) have introduced the Saving America's Pollinators Act (H.R. 3040), which would require the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to take immediate action to protect bees and other pollinators by suspending the use of neonicotinoid insecticides. Tell your Representative to support the Saving America’s Pollinators Act!
