Protect Your Right to Know!

The House of Representatives will vote this week on a controversial "national food uniformity" labeling law. This law is poised to eliminate local government and states' ability to require food safety food labels on foods or beverages that are likely to cause cancer, birth defects, allergic reactions, or mercury poisoning. This bill would also prevent citizens in local municipalities and states from passing laws requiring that genetically engineered foods and ingredients such as recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH) be labeled. This law clearly benefits the food industry (and the politicians whose campaigns they contribute to) at a great cost to consumers.
