|Consumers Have a Right to Know What Goes Into Their Food|
NCCC supports the Just Label It (JLI) Campaign. The Just Label It (JLI) Campaign is a coalition of those who believe that genetically engineered foods should be labeled.
NCCC has no opinion on the safety or quality of these foods as there are many opinions and scientific studies on both sides of the issue. However, NCCC does support a consumer’s right to know so that the consumer can make informed choices based upon his/her beliefs about which foods to buy.
Calories, fat content and nutritional information is already on the side of every food we buy. Why can’t consumers know if the components going into that food are genetically engineered? NCCC thinks that food should be labeled, ultimately giving consumers the freedom of choice to make their own decisions.
