UNTESTED, UNLABELED, UNACCEPTABLE!

Genetically engineered ingredients, such as corn and soy, are currently in 60-70% of the food on grocery store shelves, such as cereal, soup, tortilla chips, infant formula and soda. Amazingly, NONE of the genetically engineered foods on the market have been adequately tested for safety to human health or the environment or labeled by the FDA, EPA or USDA. For instance, EPA scientific advisors recommended in July that extensive study of potential allergic effects of engineered corn be conducted. As a result, we have become the subjects of a large-scale experiment on our health and our environment by biotechnology companies. Risks to our health and the environment include new food allergies, antibiotic resistance, increased pesticide use, harm to non-target species, and contamination of organic and conventional farmers' crops.

Every year, more genetically engineered crops are developed and currently more than 100 million acres of genetically engineered crops are being grown around the world. It is time to stop the experiment on our health and the environment!

Genetically Engineered Food Alert is asking Kraft to be a leader in corporate responsibility, and work to prevent other threats to consumers, by taking the following steps with the goal of phasing out the use of all genetically engineered ingredients until adequate testing, labeling, and liability are in place:

1. Stop using genetically engineered corn and corn derivatives in all of your products, as corn raises serious concerns of allergenicity, and

2. Label products containing other genetically engineered ingredients, so consumers can have a choice in what they buy.

How can you help in getting genetically engineered ingredients out of our fields and off of our dinner tables? You can start by taking action on our first National Kraft Call-in on NOVEMBER 8th!

TAKE ACTION!

Join Genetically Engineered Food Alert, Free the Planet, Genetic Engineering Action Network and many others in the nationwide campaign to get the largest food company in the U.S. to go genetically engineered free on November 8th by calling or emailing Kraft Foods and letting them know that you don't want genetically engineered ingredients in your Mac and Cheese!

EMAIL: Go to our website at www.gefoodalert.com and send an email to Kraft's CEO, Betsy Holden

CALL: Call Kraft Foods at 1-800-323-0768, 9:00 a.m. - 8 p.m., Eastern Time, Monday through Friday.

FAX: Fax Kraft at 847-646-6005

Step 1:TELL KRAFT:

1. If you are a student, tell them your age (corporations want young people to be their lifelong consumers, so they'll really listen to you!)

2.You are concerned that their foods contain genetically engineered ingredients and you want Kraft Foods to work to ensure your food is safe by taking the following steps with the goal of phasing out the use of all genetically engineered ingredients until adequate testing, labeling, and liability are in place:

--Stop using genetically engineered corn and corn derivatives in all of your products, as genetically engineered corn raises serious concerns of allergenicity, and other health concerns

-- Label products containing other genetically engineered ingredients, so consumers can have a choice in what they buy.

Let's flood Kraft with our message and let them know that we don't want our food to be Genetically Krafted anymore!
