March 18th, 2016Today, General Mills announced it will label products with genetically modified ingredients.
March 16th, 2016Today, the Senate voted to defeat the Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act, introduced by Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kans.). The vote was a major win for consumers. Gary Hirshberg, chairman of Just Label It and Stonyfield Farm, said the time is ripe for a true compromise that would satisfy the consumers’ right to know and can also work for industry.
March 15th, 2016A new version of the so-called Deny Americans the Right to Know, or DARK, Act filed today would block laws of states from requiring mandatory GMO labeling, and instead make a new voluntary system. On products that choose to carry it, consumers would have to call a 1-800 number or use another high-tech gimmick to find out if a food contains genetically engineered ingredients, or GMOs.
March 2nd, 2016A new bill introduced today by Senator Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) could “bridge the divide” between consumers and industry on the issue of transparency and GMO labeling, according to a statement from Just Label It’s chairman Gary Hirshberg.
March 1st, 2016During a mark up in the Senate Agriculture Committee, Senator Amy Klobuchar voted yes to bring to the floor of the Senate a bill-- known as the Deny Americans the Right to Know, or DARK Act. The anti-consumer legislation would block states from enacting GMO labeling laws and make it harder for companies to adopt voluntary labeling initiatives.
March 1st, 2016The Just Label It campaign issued the following statement today in response to the Senate Agriculture Committee’s adoption the Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act.
February 20th, 2016Senate Agriculture Chairman Pat Roberts (R-KS) introduced the DARK Act in the Senate today. The draft legislation would stop states from labeling food with GMO ingredients.
February 19th, 2016JLI strongly opposes Senate passage of the DARK Act.
February 12th, 2016More than 60,000 people signed a petition thanking Campbell Soup Company for supporting the mandatory labeling of genetically modified ingredients, or GMOs.
January 14th, 2016The new GMO potato cleared this week by the Food and Drug Administration for sale in the United States is yet another in the long list of reasons why consumers deserve an on-package, federal mandatory labeling system, according to Just Label It.
January 8th, 2016Just Label It applauds Campbell’s for their decision to support mandatory GMO labeling.
December 16th, 2015Just Label It, a coalition of more than 700 organizations and companies campaigning for Americans' right to know what's in their food, applauded congressional leaders for rejecting efforts by the food industry to block GMO labeling in the omnibus appropriations bill agreed upon today.
December 14th, 2015The move by PepsiCo to include a non-GMO seal Tropicana Pure Premium and four other PepsiCo products is “completely disingenuous,” according to the following statement from Gary Hirshberg, Chairman of Just Label It.
December 7th, 2015Clinging to a now-debunked argument that mandatory GMO labeling will lead to surging food prices, big food and beverage corporations called on Congress to slip language into the must-pass Omnibus spending bill that would block states from enacting their own labeling laws.
December 2nd, 2015By an overwhelming margin, American voters say consumers should have the right to know if their food is genetically modified, with 89 percent in support of mandatory GMO labeling, according to a new national poll. Nearly the same number of consumers would like to see the labels in an easy to read format.
November 19th, 2015The Food and Drug Administration’s decision to approve the sale of genetically modified salmon underscores the need for a national, mandatory standard for the disclosure of genetically engineered foods and ingredients (GMOs). The decision marks the first time a genetically modified animal has been cleared for human consumption.
Consumer and Environmental Groups Call on General Mills to Stop Funding Anti-GMO Labeling Efforts and Support Consumers’ Right to Know
October 26th, 2015Consumer and environmental groups representing hundreds of thousands of consumers launched an advertising campaign directed at General Mills calling on the company to respond to consumer demands for the right to know what is in the food they buy and eat and to stop funding anti-food labeling efforts. General Mills, known for cereal brands like Cheerios and Wheaties, has spent millions of dollars fighting efforts to require labels on food products containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
September 5th, 2015Big biotech companies like Monsanto and big food companies like General Mills and Pepsi have spun the science to fight our right to know what’s in our food and how it’s grown. Nine out of 10 Americans — regardless of age, income or even party affiliation — simply want the right to know if GMOs are in their food, the same right held by consumers in 64 other nations. The Senate and the Obama administration should look at all of the science — including the clear and convincing evidence that GMO crops have fueled an explosion in weed killers linked to cancer — not just Monsanto’s “science" and reject legislation passed by the House to block state and federal GMO labeling.
July 23rd, 2015House passage of what critics call the DARK Act, for Deny Americans the Right to Know, shows a disregard for Americans’ basic rights, Just Label It said today.
July 13th, 2015The latest version of the Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act, an industry-backed bill designed to block GMO labeling would create even more consumer confusion around genetically engineered foods, according to Just Label It.

Tell Congress you support Mandatory GMO Labeling! We need you to take immediate action and tell Congress you support mandatory GMO labeling!
