7/31/16 Update: Obama went against the People and signed the flawed Food “Disclosure” bill, even with an official White House Peoples’ Petition to Veto and FDA critical remarks in their technical comment. We will continue to expose the two major Establishment parties’ incestuous GMO Myths . Now, check out other excellent options for food labeling in this election: Libertarians and Greens. The two party conventions showed the Establishment control is fracturing!
State laws resulted from citizen action; this national bill ignored citizens’ interests and rights in favor of corporate interests. If you don’t act now, and the President signs the bill it will become a very bad anti- consumer law. We Americans will be denied the right to know what is in our food. Very easy to leave a comment on the White House lines. This flawed bill, if not vetoed, will become law for a 2 year deferral on voluntary QR code labeling only – nothing in plain English on package as FDA customarily requires. It’s such a hastily drafted bill with conflicts and errors, of which the primary intent was to knock out Vermont’s mandatory food labeling law which went into effect July 1st, 2016. Please share widely as the more voices heard by Obama, the better! Click here for more details or scroll down to prior posts for important details.
