Scott Faber, senior vice president of government affairs for the Environmental Working Group, testified Dec. 10 before the House Committee on Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health against H.R. 4432, the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act. The legislation would deny Americans the right to know what’s in their food and how it is grown. It would preempt state laws that require labeling of genetically engineered foods. Faber spoke on behalf of Just Label It, a coalition of more than 700 businesses and organizations dedicated to mandatory GE labeling.
