Washington, D.C. – The following is a statement of Just Label It Executive Director Scott Faber on legislation drafted by the food industry to bar states from requiring GE labels on food and to limit FDA’s ability to compel food compel GE labels:

“This ‘Hail Mary’ pass comes too late to deny consumers the right to know what’s in their food. Two states have already given consumers the same rights as consumers in 64 other countries around world, and 20 more states are poised to pass GE labeling legislation in 2014. Now is the time for food companies to work with JLI and others to craft a national mandatory labeling system, not make desperate moves to block states from protecting their consumers from misleading “natural” claims or to tie FDA’s hands in red tape.”
