Update 7/14/16: Congress just passed the final version of Monsanto’s Dream Bill to ban state genetically engineered food (GMO) labeling laws — President Obama could sign it very soon!

The bill that passed through Congress will NOT result in any meaningful labeling of genetically engineered foods. The media keeps referring to this as a national mandatory GMO labeling law, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

This sham bill immediately pre-empts state GMO labeling laws and allows companies to use QR codes, 800 numbers and websites for disclosing GMO ingredient information, basically giving people the runaround. And the bill has so many loopholes that, according to the FDA, many products that come from genetically engineered crops would not be labeled.

Vermont’s GMO labeling law — the first of its kind in the country — went into effect on July 1. Many of us around the country are seeing products with GMO labeling showing up in grocery stores, and we will continue to see those unless this bill is signed into law by President Obama.

President Obama made a campaign promise in 2007 to seek mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods. We must hold him to that promise, and the clock is ticking.

Sign the petition to ask President Obama to VETO the DARK Act!

Please tell President Obama to veto the “DARK Act”, the sham labeling bill that will keep Americans in the DARK about what we are eating.

Does President Obama actually want this to be his ‪#‎GMOlegacy‬?

Let’s hold him to his 2007 campaign promise to label GMOs.

The “DARK Act” would not fulfill this promise and instead President Obama would be remembered as the president who sold the American people out to industry. Don’t give up. Use your voice and be sure the President hears from you.
