Sign the Petition!
Help us reach our goal of 25,000 signatures on our petition to the US Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration. We're urging these agencies to prohibit the use of the misleading "natural" label on food once and for all. Only when this misleading label stops confusing consumers can credible and verified labels effectively compete in the marketplace.
