Don’t Be Left in the DARK!

How does voluntary GMO labeling sound to you? The best way to guarantee Sprout_Lightbulbtransparency in food labeling is to make it optional, right?

Yeah, we don’t think so either. Last month, Representative Mike Pompeo (R-KS) reintroduced HR 1599 to the House. This bill, appropriately nicknamed the “DARK Act” (Denying Americans’ Right to Know), is a blatant attempt to use the power of the federal government to hinder GMO labeling on the state level.

Written by organizations whose financial interests are threatened by truthful labels, this bill would outlaw mandatory labeling legislation passed by the states. Instead, it would substitute ineffective “voluntary labeling” standards that serve only to keep consumers in the dark.
