If the Wall Street bailout was hard to swallow, *the government is
preparing a Halloween trick* that just may be impossible to stomach.

* We have the right to know what we are eating!

humans or the environment.

The FDA says they will conduct a safety review before these foods can be
sold for human consumption. But consumers won't know if they're buying
genetically engineered food, because the agency isn't going to require a

animal's genes, or whether our milk has insect DNA in it?

_Sign our petition and show the FDA that Americans want to know what's
in their food!

before it starts.
