The Truth in Labeling Campaign


GRAS petition


Anatomy of a fraud

Statement of Grounds

FDA, the big picture

Citizen Petition filed requesting that the FDA acknowledge the damaging effects of MSG and stop promoting the additive

In January 2021 a Citizen Petition was filed with the FDA requesting that it acknowledge the ongoing danger to human health posed by monosodium glutamate (MSG).

Evidence shows that the glutamate industry has had close ties to the FDA for over 50 years, not only allowing their lies to go unchallenged, but actually reviewing and approving the shoddy research they put forth to allegedly “prove” the safety of their products.

Clearly, it will take nothing less than a gigantic grass roots effort to pressure the FDA and the U.S. Legislature that supports them to strip these additives of their generally recognized as safe (GRAS) status.
