A majority of Senators voted to move the DARK Act forward for a final vote onJuly 6. If ultimately passed, this bill would STOP state laws to label genetically engineered foods. It would take away GMO labels in stores that are already being provided in advance of Vermont's GMO labelling law. It would create an unenforced national "standard" for labels that includes 1-800 numbers, bar codes, and websites that create the illusion of labelling and nothing more.
This bill is unjust and would limit access to labelling information to those with a smart phone, a good data plan, cell reception and the extra time to read a website about every package of food, instead of an on-package label that tells consumers what they need to know at a glance.
