House Passes Measure (DARK) to Block State GMO Labeling Laws

Democracy Now!

House lawmakers have passed a measure to block states from requiring the labeling of genetically modified foods. The measure would nullify existing GMO labeling laws, which have passed but not yet taken effect in Vermont, Connecticut and Maine. Dubbed the Denying Americans the Right to Know, or DARK, Act, the bill was backed by corporate food interests, including the Grocery Manufacturers Association and Monsanto.
