On July 23, 275 members of the U.S. House of Representatives voted in favor of H.R. 1599, the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act. They voted against the 93 percent of Americans who are in favor of mandatory labeling of GMOs. They voted against you. Now it’s up to the Senate to stop this bill in it’s tracks.
