Urge Congress to Pass Legislation to Fix FDA Menu Labeling Rule

FDA has posted the final menu labeling guidance. With this guidance posted, it is even more important that you contact your U.S. Senators urging them to co-sponsor legislation (S. 2217) to fix FDA’s “Menu Labeling” rule, and thanking your Representatives who voted for the bill when it passed the House of Representatives earlier this year. With the implementation clock now ticking, we need the Senate to move the bill to enact these needed changes.  

Please click on the "take action" button below. If you have not logged in previously, the system will ask for your address information in order to match you with your appropriate legislators. If you encounter any technical problems or need help finding out who to contact, please contact FMI’s Rob Rosado (202) 220-0642.  


Please Thank Your Senators for their Support or Consideration of the Bipartisan Roberts Biotechnology Bill

The U.S. Senate has completed their vote on the Roberts Biotechnology Labeling bill and cloture was not invoked, as the bill did not receive the 60 votes necessary to move the legislation. The measure would have established a national standard for labeling food products that contain GMO ingredients and preempted any other state approaches that differ from this national standard. 

In addition to our deep appreciation for those in the Senate who stood with us, we'd like to offer thanks to all of you who contacted your Senators for your extraordinary efforts over the last few days and weeks.  There is not one Senator who has not been touched by a grocer in the last week and that is incredibly powerful.   

Please take a moment to send a letter to your Senators that either thanks them for voting for the Roberts bill, or thanks them for their consideration of the measure.
