Thank You to Senate Leaders for Supporting Common Sense

Today we take a moment to thank some of the champions in the United States Senate. In particular, fourteen Senators who went on the record yesterday in support of our industry by voting for an amendment (to a budget bill) that would have ensured that the FDA does not enforce outdated food labeling standards.
