Opponents of a food labeling bill in the U.S. House expressed their frustration Thursday outside of Republican Rep. Billy Long’s office in Springfield.

Introduced in March, HB 1599 seeks “to amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act with respect to food produced from, containing, or consisting of a bioengineered organism, the labeling of natural foods, and for other purposes.”
