Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Following the passage of H.R. 1599, the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act, Congressman Bob Gibbs released the following statement:

“I applaud my colleagues who voted to streamline the GMO-free labeling efforts and ensure uniformity on voluntary labeling rules.  Currently, farmers and producers must work with a patchwork of state and local labeling standards.  H.R. 1599 will give the private sector greater certainty and will help give consumers an opportunity to make an informed choice at the supermarket.”
