New Rewrite of CFR Code Allows 90 Percent GMOs And Synthetic Chemicals

New Rewrite of CFR Code Allows 90 Percent GMOs And Synthetic Chemicals

Specific are the sections:

§205.601 Synthetic substances allowed for use in organic crop production.
§205.602 Nonsynthetic substances prohibited for use in organic crop production.
§205.603 Synthetic substances allowed for use in organic livestock production.
§205.604 Nonsynthetic substances prohibited for use in organic livestock production.
§205.605 Nonagricultural (nonorganic) substances allowed as ingredients in or on processed products labeled as “organic” or “made with organic (specified ingredients or food group(s)).”

The large agricultural companies and chemical manufacturers have decided they cannot win the battle for a logical argument and therefore have decided to neutralize the efforts of the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) on April 30th, 2014 in San Antonio, Texas

This is when the NOSB had Organic Consumers Association’s (OCA) political director Alexis Baden-Mayer arrested for failing to ignore warnings and end illegal protests in regard to the changes and implement of the National Organic Program.

Catherine J. Frompovich writes “§205.606 Nonorganically produced agricultural products allowed as ingredients in or on processed products labeled as “organic.” Reading through the menu of “things” allowed ought to make one realize just how desperate Big Ag and non-organic food producers want to infiltrate the ORGANIC brand to pollute what semblance of non-contaminated and nutritious food stocks are grown and fit to eat, in this writer’s opinion.”

This will open the doors for the adulteration of organic food being shipped from China to be labeled as organic and processed foods to be packed with unlabeled GMO and pesticide additives.

These new food standards ensure that our food supply will be nutrient deficient and packed with unknown health issues.

From out of the ashes of Alexis Baden-Mayer’s arrest is the OCA’s vow to establish a common boycott of all products that have refused help fund the campaign for labels on all genetic engineered foods on products.

Known as Greenwashing, corporations desperate to clean up their public image and profit from the organic label will now face steep competition and brand loyalty issues.

The new trade association standard set by the OCA will be forthcoming and that is something we can all sink our teeth into.
