TODAY is World Food Day and GMO Awareness Day.

Now is the time to shine some light on the Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act!
This summer Congress passed H.R. 1599, a bill that would block your right to know what you eat and feed your family. Now is the time to act. Friday, October 16 is World Food Day and GMO Awareness Day. Let Senator Rob Portman and Senator Sherrod Brown know that their voters are united in wanting truly fair and accurate labeling of genetically engineered (GE) foods.
While the bill has not yet been introduced in the Senate, there is a hearing in the Senate Agricultural Committee on Wednesday, October 21. There is also a possibility that this bill could be slipped into a larger omnibus funding bill—a move that would conveniently eliminate public notice and debate on labeling GE food, something consumers overwhelmingly support.
If enacted, the DARK Act will:
* Codify voluntary GE labeling (meaning no one will choose to label GE food);
* Allow meat, eggs, and dairy from animals fed GE grain to be labeled non-GE;
* Enable GE food to be labeled as “natural”; and
* Eliminate existing state laws and prevent new state laws requiring GE labeling.
Join this national day of awareness! Call your Senators now and tell their staff we want to know what is in the food we eat! Stand with the majority of the American people and take a stand against the DARK Act and for mandatory GE labeling.
