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.

With July 1 Deadline Approaching, Ask Your Senators to Act Now on Biotechnology Labeling
With the Vermont genetically engineered food labeling law set to go into effect on July 1, it is more important than ever to establish a national standard for labeling food products that contain GMO ingredients and to preempt any other state approaches that differ from this national standard. Failure to adopt a uniform national standard will result in a state-by-state patchwork of GMO labeling that is confusing to consumers, undermines FDA and USDA food labeling oversight, and could lead to empty shelves in stores.
While the U.S. Senate did not invoke cloture on the Roberts Biotechnology Labeling bill this past March, work continues on a compromise measure. Please take a moment to send a letter to your Senators that thanks them for their support or consideration of the the Roberts bill, and emphasizes the continuing importance of adopting a national system for GMO information disclosure.
