(Washington, D.C. – June 24, 2016) The International Dairy Foods Association yesterday commended Senators Pat Roberts (R-KS) and Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) for finalizing a bipartisan agreement that would establish a uniform, national standard for labeling foods made with genetically modified, or GMO, ingredients. IDFA urged members of Congress to act quickly to pass the legislation.

The bill, if passed, would prevent a state-by-state patchwork of labeling mandates. One such law is scheduled to take effect in Vermont on July 1, 2016.
