week the Senate Agriculture Committee approved voluntary GMO labeling
legislation—which means we are very close to voluntary labeling becoming the
law of the land.
Jeff Merkley (D-OR) has proposed a competing piece of legislation, the
Biotechnology Food Labeling and Uniformity Act, that would create a mandatory
labeling standard that gives food companies four options to label their food. This
bill may be our only hope for a federal mandatory labeling law, especially as
voluntary labeling legislation is moving so quickly through Congress.
to your senators and urge them to OPPOSE any effort to pass voluntary GMO labeling
legislation, and instead support mandatory labeling bills like Sen. Merkley’s
Biotechnology Food Labeling and Uniformity Act!
Please personalize and add your own
comments if you have time!
