Grocery Manufacturer’s Assoc. Sues Moms – Audio


From the Food Nation Radio News Desk

This week on the Food Nation Radio Network, we shared a story about Moms for Labeling; a group of concerned Seattle mothers who want to see genetically modified foods labeled properly.  After their small non-profit organization filed a lawsuit against the Grocery Manufacturers’ Association claiming that the GMA is acting as a Political Action Committee in its support of the “I 522” ballot initiative, the GMA sued them.

Moms for Labeling alleges that the GMA is acting improperly by not identifying member companies who have donated money for political initiatives as required by Washington state law.

The GMA is fighting back against Moms for Labeling, using the financial might of some of the biggest companies in the world to file a countersuit against this small group of moms.

Elizabeth Dougherty spoke about the case with Karen Andonian of Moms for Labeling and her attorney Knoll Lowney.
