Food Movement Opposes “Backroom Deal” on GMO Labeling

WASHINGTON - Today a national coalition of consumer, food safety, farm, environmental, and religious groups along with several food corporations sent a joint letter to all members of the Senate urging opposition to a discriminatory and deeply flawed GMO labeling bill being offered by Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS) and Debbie Stabenow (D-MI). The coalition of 70 groups noted that the bill has come forward without a hearing or testimony and was the result of non-transparent dealing between the two Senators and the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) and other industry groups.
