Representatives Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) and G. K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) have introduced legislation dubbed the Deny Americans the Right-to-Know Act (DARK Act), which would deny consumers the right to know if there are genetically engineered ingredients in their food. We need you to take immediate action and tell Congress you support mandatory GE labeling!
The DARK Act would make the failed voluntary labeling system that we have had in place over the past 13 years permanent. Since this system was put in place in 2001, not a single company has disclosed the presence of GE ingredients in their products. The bill would also prevent the FDA from ever compelling labeling in the future.
If passed, this bill would allow companies to label products containing GMOs as “natural.” What’s natural about GMOs? It would also pre-empt states from taking any legislative efforts to require GE labels while tying FDA’s hands. Now is the time to write to your congress people in support of mandatory labeling.
