Pingree statement on Senate vote against DARK Act

Calls for mandatory labeling of products containing genetically engineered ingredients

After the U.S. Senate voted to block the DARK Act, an anti-GMO labeling bill, Congresswoman Chellie Pingree issued the following statement:
"The DARK Act goes against the 90% of Americans who think that food containing GMOs should be labeled and its defeat in the Senate is a win for consumers.  Now we should move forward with a reasonable bill that requires clear, simple on-package labeling that tells consumers if they are buying something that contains GMOs."
Pingree is a cosponsor of a bill in the House that would require mandatory labeling of products containing GMO ingredients.
