Save Organic Standards

The Save Organic Standards Campaign (SOS) aimed to prohibit the U.S. Department of Agriculture from including genetically engineered foods under the organic label in the new federal guidelines governing organic food standards. The USDA received over 280,000 letters of protest, which resulted in the withdrawal of the proposed federal standards.
