Obama Promises ‘Immediate’ GMO Labeling in 2007 Speech

Obama promised ‘immediate’ labeling of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) amid serious demand for labeling from upwards of 93-95% of citizens conservatively based on numbers from numerous polling organizations.

5 years later, the promise for GMO labeling has not been fulfilled. Instead, Obama appointed Monsanto VP Michael Taylor as an adviser to the FDA. He currently occupies another key position in the FDA.

Why has Obama not kept his promise to label GMOs within the United States to protect consumers and allow them a more informed decision when shopping for themselves and their families?
