Mike Pompeo (R-KS) is expected to reintroduce his Safe and Accurate Food
Labeling Act in the next week or two. If passed, it would nullify the efforts
of ten states that are currently considering bills to require the labeling of
genetically engineered foods.
the language is the same as his original 2014 bill, this would give the FDA
full authority to label GMOs, and the agency favors a voluntary approach. With
a federal framework in place, states would be precluded from setting up their
own labeling standards.
fact is, we essentially already have a voluntary labeling system, and not a
single company has elected to label its products that contain GMOs. If Congress
passes this bill, Big Food can continue to keep consumers in the dark about
what we’re eating. Tell your legislators not
to co-sponsor this bill!
Please personalize and add your own comments if you have time!
Please do NOT co-sponsor the voluntary GMO labeling bill!
