JLI Strongly Opposes Senate Passage of DARK Act

WASHINGTON- The following is a statement from Gary Hirshberg, chairmen of Just Label It and Stonyfield Farm:

“Just Label It strongly supports mandatory GMO labeling and urges the Senate to reject the DARK Act. Allowing food companies to make voluntary disclosures will simply perpetuate the status quo that has left consumers in the dark. Nine out of ten consumers — regardless of age, income or even party affiliation — want the right to know whether their food contains GMOs, and food leaders like Campbell’s have shown that mandatory GMO labeling will not increase food prices. As the Senate considers the DARK Act, we reiterate our support for a mandatory, national GMO labeling system that gives American consumers the same rights as consumers in 64 nations.”
