GMO Answers Invites Consumers to Join the Online Conversation during GMO Awareness Month in October

WASHINGTON, Sept. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- During GMO Awareness Month this October, the agricultural biotechnology companies that created GMO Answers (www.GMOAnswers.com) are encouraging consumers to visit the website and join the online conversation.

"We look forward to answering more questions and giving consumers the facts about the food they eat."

GMO Answers launched in July and will use GMO Awareness Month to build on that momentum and ongoing commitment to responding to the toughest questions. Consumers want to know more about their food and where it comes from.
