The USDA has released its final GMO labeling rule, and it’s not good. As we feared when the agency released its proposal earlier this year, the so-called GMO labeling law will apply only to a narrow set of foods. Congress and the USDA have offered a number of loopholes and exemptions to food companies, undermining any semblance of a consumer’s right to know. It’s as if the USDA asked the food industry to write the rule themselves.
Write to Congress and the USDA, and tell them to fix this rule to it promotes consumers' right to know, rather than industry's right to obscure.
Please fix the GMO labeling rule
