AFBF issues GMO labeling statement

Statement by Bob Stallman, President,
American Farm Bureau Federation,
Regarding Committee Passage of GMO Labeling Bill H.R. 1599

WASHINGTON, D.C., July 14, 2015 – “The American Farm Bureau Federation is pleased that Congress is moving to bring greater clarity to food labeling. H.R. 1599 empowers consumers by continuing to require warning labels for foods that may have adverse effects on the public. At the same time, it does away with labeling schemes that would stigmatize foods based on nothing more than the way in which they were developed.

“This bill is an antidote to anti-GMO initiatives that make people wrongly fear the food they eat. Such regulations generally ignore science and undermine the public’s understanding of the food farmers and ranchers produce. H.R. 1599 restores reason to our food discussions and shows pseudoscience and food quackery the door. We look forward to passage by the full House in the very near future.”
