House Passes Bill Anti GMO Labeling Law


On July 23, 2015, the US House of Representatives passed HR 1599,1 ironically misnamed "The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act" more commonly referred to as the "Deny Americans the Right to Know" or DARK Act.

Despite heavy opposition, the measure was approved 275-150.

The "DARK" Act (HR 1599) specifically preempts states' rights to create their own GMO food labeling laws and, if passed by the Senate, will effectively block Vermont's GMO labeling law, set to take effect in 2016.

This is a significant blow to Americans' right to truthful and transparent information about the food we eat, and Republican dissention in the Senate is our last hope to put a stop to this latest and most monstrous incarnation of the "Monsanto Protection Act."
