Genetically modified food discussion tonight in Weston

What are GMOs and what does Connecticut’s labeling bill mean for consumers?

Genetically modified foods are labeled in 50 countries, but not the United States. Connecticut consumers deserve the right to know what’s in their food and HB 5117 would mandate the labeling of GMOs.

Learn why the FDA hasn’t mandated its labeling, why federal legislation has failed, and discover the health risks associated with GMOs and how to avoid them in our diets.

Join Analiese Paik and Tara Littman, founders of The Right to Know CT, righttoknow.org, for an important discussion on GMOs. Several state legislators will also be present.

The discussion will be held Tuesday, April 24, at 7 p.m., at the Weston Public Library. The program is free and open to the public and is sponsored by the Friends of the Weston Public Library and the Weston Sustainability Committee. Register online at [email protected]
