Breaking: Obama signed Monsanto's Dream Bill (also known as the DARK Act) on July 29, cementing his legacy as a tool for the chemical industry.
Congress just passed the final version of Monsanto's Dream Bill to ban state genetically engineered food (GMO) labeling laws — President Obama could sign it as soon as tomorrow!
This sham bill immediately pre-empts state GMO labeling laws and will allow companies to use QR codes, 800 numbers and websites to disclose GMO ingredient information. The bill has so many loopholes that, according to the FDA, many products that come from genetically engineered crops will not be labeled.
