Vote No on H.R. 1599: Call your Congresspeople Now

We need you to take immediate action and tell Congress you oppose the DARK Act and support federally mandated GMO labeling!
Call your Member of Congress NOW and urge them to vote no on H.R. 1599, the DARK Act- 844-311-6262
Representatives Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) and G. K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) have introduced legislation that we in the consumer rights community have dubbed the “Deny Americans the Right-to-Know” Act (DARK Act) that has just passed the House Agriculture Committee and will be voted on by the House of Representatives any day now.
The “Denying Americans the Right-to-Know” (DARK) Act would.
  • Preempt states from requiring labeling of GMO food.
  • Preempt states from regulating GMO crops to protect public health and the environment.
  • Virtually eliminate FDA’s ability to craft a national GMO labeling system.
  • Codify the current, broken voluntary labeling system.
  • Create a GMO “safety” review system based on industry science.
  • Allow “natural” foods to contain GMO ingredients and preempt state efforts to end misleading “natural” claims.
Now is the time to tell your Representatives and Senators that you oppose the Pompeo bill and support mandatory labeling.
