The Community Alliance with Family Farmers (CAFF) will be deciding whether to actively support the ban based on their members’ input. We hope to be moving on getting member input this February.

CAFF logoCAFF supports a moratorium on genetically engineered food and crops until the following conditions are met:

• objective, long-term testing of the impacts of any GMO on human health and the environment has been conducted,

• results of such tests have been disseminated to farmers, consumers and any other affected parties,

• farmers are assured full indemnification of liability,

• all food containing GMOs should be labeled,

• and GMO patent holders are held fully liable for any adverse impacts on human health and the environment resulting from GMOs developed with their technology.
