Tell Your Senators to Oppose the DARK Act Rider!

The House has approved the so-called “Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015,” i.e., the “Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act.” Now, Sen. Debbie Stabenow is working to attach DARK Act-like provisions to the end-of-the-year budget bill. In exchange, companies would develop an alternative, completely voluntary disclosure system, such as scannable codes on food packaging that would tell consumers whether or not the product contains GMOs. This would eliminate state-mandated GMO labeling without even voting on the DARK Act proposal.

There’s another reason why industry doesn’t want to wait for Congress to approve the DARK Act or similar legislation: Vermont’s landmark GMO labeling legislation takes effect in July 2016. This maneuver is industry’s last hope to kill Vermont’s law before it goes into effect.

 Urge your senators to oppose Sen. Stabenow’s rider if it comes up in the omnibus budget bill.
