Anti-labeling forces are scrambling to get legislation through Congress that would prevent states from passing mandatory GMO labeling legislation. There are only days for such a deal to come together before the House of Representatives leaves for a recess on June 24.The biotech industry and the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association (GMA) are aggressively trying to enact federal preemption legislation as soon as possible to prevent Vermont’s law from going into effect on July 1.
Write to your senators, representatives, and the White House and urge them to oppose ANY legislation that would do anything less than mandate the labeling of foods with genetically modified ingredients with clear, on-label notifications.
