|Want GMOs Labeled? Contact Congress Today|
If you would like see GMO foods labeled, now is a critical time to contact your elected Congressional officials. Right now, Congress is debating a proposed law that would block mandatory GMO labeling at the national and state levels. Benignly titled the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act, this bill establishes new barriers to a national mandatory labeling system, and undermines the public will by nullifying GMO labeling laws already on the books in Vermont, Connecticut, and Maine. It would also prevent states from passing any future GMO labeling laws.
Mandatory GMO labeling advocates have dubbed this bill the Denying Americans the Right-to-Know, or DARK, Act, and we agree that it would deny Americans the right to know what’s in their food. The Brattleboro Food Co-op opposes this bill.
