The Center for Food Safety, founded in 1997 by the International Center for Technology Assessment (ICTA) (web) [1], describes itself as a "U.S. non-profit organization" "that works to protect human health and the environment by curbing the use of harmful food production technologies and by promoting organic foods and other forms of sustainable agriculture. Among the issues the organization works on are: genetically modified foods, organic food standards, aquaculture, animal cloning, food irradiation, sythetic hormones (such rBGH), and mad cow disease." [2]

The organization received a four-star ("exceptional") rating from the charitable oversight organization Charity Navigator. [3]

Note: The Center for Food Safety is not the same organization as the Center for Food Safety & Applied Nutrition, which is part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. [4]
