We stand with our members Rural Vermont, NOFA-VT and others that have passed legislation mandating GMOs to be labeled, and oppose legislation that would enable food processors to hide GM ingredients in their products, such as S. 2609, Senator Roberts’ DARK Act. GMO labels should be mandatory, not voluntary. Period.
NFFC President Urges House to Oppose HR 1599, DARK Act
For non-GMO farmers, H.R. 1599 would be disastrous as it would preempt laws designed to protect them from GMO contamination of their fields. Without strong regulations and oversight, farmers’ crops and livelihoods are at risk in ways that they, their families and their communities cannot afford.
