Stop The DARK Act in Its Tracks!

Representatives Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) and G. K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) have introduced legislation aimed at protecting Monsanto and other agrichemical corporations by keeping the public in the DARK about genetically engineered ingredients in the food we eat. Consumer, health, and environmental groups are calling it the “Deny Americans the Right-to-Know” Act (DARK Act) (HR 1599), and it just passed the House.

Agrichemical companies have hired high-priced lobbyists in attempts to move the bill quickly through Congress, and prevent the public from speaking out against the Act.

The “Denying Americans the Right-to-Know” (DARK) Act would.

  • Preempt states from regulating GMO crops to protect public health and the environment.
  • Virtually eliminate FDA’s ability to craft a national GMO labeling system.
  • Codify the current, broken voluntary labeling system.
  • Create a GMO “safety” review system based on industry science.
  •  Allow “natural” foods to contain GMO ingredients and preempt state efforts to end misleading “natural” claims.

We need you to take immediate action and tell Congress you oppose the DARK Act and support federally mandated GMO labeling!
