Washington, D.C. (March 25, 2015)—The National Council of Farmer Cooperatives (NCFC) today applauded the introduction of The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act, by Representatives Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) and G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.). The legislation would create a national, science-based standard for the safety and labeling of food products containing genetically modified ingredients (GMOs).
NCFC joins broad-based coalition to advocate for a federal GMO labeling solution.
