Sen. Bernie Sanders issued the following statement regarding new legislation put forward by Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Pat Roberts to require labeling of genetically modified food:

“I am very proud that Vermont has led the country in GMO labeling. This bill would preempt what Vermont and other states have done. GMO labeling exists in dozens of countries around the world. It is not controversial. Already major food companies in our country have begun labeling their products. People have a right to know what is in the food they eat. I am going to do everything I can to defeat this legislation.”
