Reps. Pompeo and Butterfield Will Introduce Industry Bill to Deny States' Rights to Label GMOs

WASHINGTON - U.S. Representatives Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) and G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) will introduce legislation this afternoon, dubbed by critics the “Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act,” that would block states from requiring labels for foods made with genetically-engineered ingredients. The bill would also restrict the Food and Drug Administration’s ability to mandate national GMO labeling and replace the independent Non-GMO Project certification with a far weaker, federal, non-GMO labeling standard.
