We petition the Obama administration to: Stop government actions to push sodium reduction. Hands off our salt.
We ask the federal government to stop their plan to push sodium reduction in food produced in the U.S.—a plan that will affect almost the entire U.S. food supply and will change the foods that consumers depend on and enjoy. The American people already revolted against sodium reduction schemes. Public comments on the FDA’s proposed restrictions on sodium were overwhelmingly negative, yet the federal government continues to call for salt reduction despite far-reaching costs and consequences. Science indicates that population-wide sodium reduction is unnecessary and could be harmful and Americans don’t want their favorite foods to change.
