House Approves the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015

The House on Thursday approved H.R. 1599, the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015, on a 275 to 150 vote. Passage of this legislation is a priority issue for Farm Bureau.

“Congress stood with farmers and ranchers today in supporting innovation that helps the environment and keeps food prices down for everyone,” AFBF President Bob Stallman said in a statement. The legislation protects consumers from confusing and misleading GMO labels and will create a national, voluntary labeling standard based on science and common sense.
