AMERICAN SEED TRADE ASSN APPLAUDS HOUSE DECISION ON GMO LABELING LEGISLATION, URGES SENATE ACTION
Source: American Seed Trade Association news release

American Seed Trade Association President & CEO Andrew W. LaVigne released the following statement on the House of Representatives passage of the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act, H.R. 1599:

"The American Seed Trade Association is pleased to be among more than 400 organizations representing all parts of the food chain in applauding the swift consideration and passage of the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act by the House of Representatives.

"We are glad to see the House of Representatives recognize that genetic engineering is an important tool for American agriculture.

This legislation ensures a uniform approach to food labeling which will provide valuable information to American consumers without unnecessarily increasing grocery store prices. A potential patchwork of state food labeling regulations would be misleading and costly to comply with and enforce.

"ASTA members have actively engaged their representatives in the House and we encourage prompt Senate action."
