Just 48 hours after Chef Tom Colicchio asked chefs to weigh in with opposition to the Senate’s new version of the DARK Act, Food Policy Action’s petition has been signed by 2,000 chefs and food professionals from 37 states.

“Consumers in 64 other countries have the right to know whether the food they buy contains GMOs, and consumers in the United States should have that same choice. Senator Roberts’ outrageous new bill is exactly the kind of anti-transparency measure that voters across the country are rejecting,” said food advocate and FPA co-founder Tom Colicchio

The chefs’ petition to Congress reads:

As chefs, we have a fundamental right to know what’s in the food we cook and serve to our customers. We urge you to reject any attempt to prevent the mandatory labeling of genetically modified food.
