Dear Roxanne,

Thank you for contacting me to share your support for labeling genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in food and agriculture. I share your support, and I appreciate hearing from you.Americans have a right to know what is in the food they buy and feed to their families. Labeling GMO products is a commonsense way to bring transparency to consumers, so they can make informed decisions about their food. That is why I am an original cosponsor of the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act (S. 511).

You can click on the video link below to hear more about why I support labeling GMO foods, and how I’m fighting to protect the rights of consumers and opposing the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act (H.R. 1599), commonly referred to as the DARK Act.

All my best,
