Farmers Oppose DARK Act, Support Mandatory GE Food Labeling

WASHINGTON - Proponents of H.R. 1599, which would preempt states and local authorities from labeling or regulation GE foods, have attempted to argue that all farmers support the legislation and oppose mandatory labeling on genetically engineered (GE) foods. This is not the case. As exemplified by yesterday’s statement from the National Farmers Union (NFU), the second largest farmers union in the country, a wide range of farmers support mandatory labeling and oppose Representative Mike Pompeo’s (R-KS) anti-labeling bill.
