Watchdog group calls on USDA to end “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy about GMO vaccines in livestock
08/08/2023 // Ethan Huff // Views

OrganicEye, a consumer watchdog group, is demanding that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) hold a public hearing – or else face a lawsuit – on the use of messenger RNA (mRNA) and other genetically engineered (GMO) vaccinations in organic livestock production.

According to OrganicEye, injecting organic animals with GMOs like mRNA inherently violates the definition of the word "organic." And the USDA needs to acknowledge and clarify this publicly so American consumers know what they are eating.

The move by OrganicEye comes as reports emerge claiming that the USDA and other organic certifiers have "quietly looked the other way" as commercial livestock producers inject their supposedly organic livestock animals with mRNA and other GMO vaccines.

As laid out in the Organic Foods Production Act of 1990, organic food must actually be organic and not contain any GMO farm inputs or ingredients. GMO vaccines absolutely constitute a non-organic input that renders an organic animal and its meat and milk as inorganic.

Rather than enforce the rules that are on the books, the USDA has sanctioned a "don't ask, don't tell" policy that allows producers to administer GMO vaccines to animals while still labeling them as organic. This policy, naturally, is being heavily pushed by Big Ag.

Tell the USDA to STOP allowing organic producers to use mRNA and other GMO vaccines in their livestock

According to Mark Kastel, the executive director of the Wisconsin-based OrganicEye advocacy group, the issue is urgent and needs to be dealt with immediately as mRNA jabs for livestock are now being mass produced using taxpayer and industry funds.

"The impetus for us to act now is the impending introduction of vaccines for livestock produced using mRNA technology similar to that used by Pfizer and Moderna to produce their respective versions of the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine," Kastel says.

"There is a continuing controversy in the country concerning this new technology and we should work to preserve organics as the last safe haven for eaters who want to secure a truly 'natural' diet."

It is "unacceptable," OrganicEye further maintains, for the USDA to simply "kick the can down the road" on this highly controversial issue, which deserves immediately attention for the safety of the organic-eating public.

If conventional consumers are okay with consuming mRNA-tainted meat, fine. But organic consumers are not, and they deserve to eat clean, untainted food that is labeled as such and not be tricked by Big Ag which is secretly injecting "organic" livestock animals with mRNA and other GMO vaccines.

OrganicEye wants the USDA's National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) to convene a meeting of all stakeholders to discuss the matter. Kastel also told The Defender that "people who have a concern – whether they're farmers that don't need them and feel they're being competitively injured by competing against these livestock factories, or whether they're consumers who have a general concern about genetic engineering and the food supply."

"They have a right to be heard," Kastel added.

The purpose of the NOSB is to catch this kind of stuff and fix it. It was designed to represent all stakeholders, including small farmers and consumers that might otherwise be overlooked because they have less-deep pockets compared to the big boys.

The first question that Kastel wants investigated is whether or not these mRNA and GMO vaccines are truly "essential" for livestock at all. Do they even belong in conventional meat and dairy animals, he wants to know?

Kastel wants the hearing to address whether "there's any good justification coming from anybody other than people involved in conventional livestock production for the use of vaccines" to administer them to animals at all.
