bill that has already passed in the House and will likely be considered by the
Senate in September would let food producers decide whether to label their
products that contain genetically engineered or modified ingredients or not. If
the “DARK Act,” as labeling advocates call it, passes in the Senate, it would
preempt any state laws for the mandatory labeling of foods containing GM
Senate version of the bill would place the labeling scheme under the
jurisdiction of the Senate Agricultural Committee, whose chair has received the
second highest amount of money from the agricultural services and products
sector and is among the top three senators receiving money from the food
processing and sales sector.
New England Journal of Medicine has
now recommended that GMO foods be labeled. Tell your senators that consumers
that you, like 93% of Americans, support the mandatory labeling of GMOs. Urge
them NOT to support the “DARK Act,” which would leave it up to food companies
to decide whether to label GMOs.
