GMO Labeling: Will Congress Keep Us in the DARK? | The Daily Sheeple

We Are What We Eat, Right? (Yes!)

Therefore, It's Imperative That We Know What We Are Eating.
(This issue is of serious/potentially life-threatening concern for those with food sensitivities/allergies)

GMO-Tainted Food Producers Don't Want Labeling Now.
(Translation: Voluntary-Labeling Is A Joke... A Bad One.)

"Polls have shown time and again that the overwhelming majority of Americans want GMO labeling on food.

Despite that, two Congressmen – who are supposed to represent the people – want to make the labeling of genetically modified foods voluntary.

Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) and co-sponsor Rep. G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) introduced their deceptively-titled “Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015″ bill last week.

It would create a voluntary federal labeling standard while preventing states from passing their own mandatory labeling laws for GMO foods.

The bill has been aptly nicknamed the Denying Americans the Right-to-Know (DARK) Act by critics.

If this sounds familiar, perhaps that is because this isn’t Pompeo’s first attempt at this kind of legislation."
