Yesterday, the US House Agriculture Committee passed H.R. 1599, the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act.
H.R. 1599 will prevent a costly and confusing state by state patchwork of GMO labeling regulations by passing a national law that provides uniformity in labeling standards across the country and ensuring that consumers can be 100% confident that the food they are eating is safe.
The bill now will now be considered by the House Energy and Commerce Committee before the full House of Representatives vote on final passage.
