Now that the House Agriculture Committee has officially approved what we’ve dubbed the Deny Americans the Right to Know– or DARK Act – it could be coming up for a vote in the full House ANY DAY NOW.
Not only would this reprehensible, anti-consumer bill block states from adopting their own GMO labeling laws, the DARK Act would make it virtually impossible for the Food and Drug Administration to EVER require mandatory labeling nationwide.
It would also codify the current broken voluntary labeling system, block states, counties and municipalities from regulating GMO crop production to protect human health and the environment, and allow GMOs in so-called “natural” foods.
Time is running out to make your voice heard: We simply cannot let Monsanto, Big Food and other special interests get away with this blatant disregard for the wishes of the American people.
