27/03/2015: AFIA welcomes re-introduction of Food Labeling Act

http://www.afia.org/ On Wednesday Joel G. Newman, the President and CEO of the American Feed Industry Association made an official statement regarding the re-introduction of the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act:
  
"AFIA is pleased with the decision to re-introduce the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act, just as we supported a similar version when introduced in the last Congress. We strongly feel there should be a federal food labeling solution, one that consumers can rely upon, but which recognizes the safety of ingredients produced by modern agricultural biotechnology.

"We support Representatives Mike Pompeo (Republican-Kansas) and GK Butterfield (Democrat-NCarolina) for standing up for what is right by working to ensure the FDA remains the authoritative power regarding food safety and labeling standards, just as the agency has for more than a century.

"AFIA will continue to work with Congress to make sure the specific needs of the animal food industry are addressed in the bill when it is enacted."
