Comments to the USDA on the Agriculture Marketing Service's Proposed Regulations to Implement the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard

July 3, 2018

After years of fear mongering by special interests and tens of millions of dollars wasted in state campaigns to compel misleading and deceptive "GMO" labels to misinform consumers and raise food costs, Congress stepped in. Acting to end attempts to hijack public policy on behalf of organic food marketers, a bipartisan bill was passed to impose a uniform national disclosure standard. Recognizing the issue has nothing to do with food safety, instead of charging FDA with the task they assigned it to USDA's Agriculture Marketing Service, which published a proposed rule and invited public comments earlier this year. ITIF cuts through the noise with comments aimed at helping USDA minimizing consumer confusion and market disruptions.
