29 GROUPS URGE KANSAS GOVERNOR SEBELIUS TO VETO BILL ON RBGH MILK LABELING, CITING CONCERNS FOR FOOD SAFETY, CONSUMERS’ RIGHT TO KNOW, AND FREEDOM OF SPEECH
State Legislature Backs Biotech Interests Despite Strong Opposition
Consumers in Kansas Could be Misled About the Safety of Their Milk
Unless Governor Kathleen Sebelius vetoes it before April 16th, a Kansas bill would prevent any national US dairy from properly labeling their milk products as free from genetically engineered bovine growth hormone (rbGH or rbST).
Governor Sebelius, it should be noted, is the nominee for the cabinet position of Secretary of Health and Human Services. “The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is the United States government’s principal agency for protecting the health of all Americans and providing essential human services, especially for those who are least able to help themselves.”
