It appears Monsanto has successfully slipped a law through Congress that will allow it to continue selling genetically modified products even if a federal judge orders them off the market.
Food safety and environmental advocates say the legislation will essentially eliminate the court’s ability to stop the sale of genetically modified products while their harmful effects are under review.
Fortunately, this constitutionally challenged amendment often referred to as the “Monsanto Protection Act” is tucked into a temporary bill, which means we can fight back in a major way.
The Center for Food Safety says it is already gearing up to “launch a major campaign to make sure this deception is not included in the next round of appropriations bills,” and Food Democracy Now is urging people to send a message to Washington, D.C.
