LATEST SENATOR TESTER
(U.S. Senate) - U.S. Senator Jon Tester is defending Montanans' right to know what's in their food, and he's holding the U.S. Department of Agriculture accountable for clearly labeling genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
Tester is demanding more transparency from the Department as it sets a national standard for labeling food products that contain GMOs. In a letter to Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, Tester is pushing for GMO labels that work for all consumers in rural communities.
"Folks in Montana and across this country have a right to know what is in the food they feed their families," Tester said. "Montanans have made their voices heard, and I will hold the government's feet to the fire to ensure that the standard they set works for everyone-especially consumers in rural communities."
