GMO Labeling To Become Law In Vermont

by admin on April 25, 2014

The Burlington Free Press reports that the Vermont Senate passed a bill that could make Vermont the first state to require labeling of foods that contain genetically modified organisms (GMO).

As of July 1, 2016, the bill will require labels on food products that contain genetically modified ingredients. Food manufacturers believe around 70-80% of packaged food on a typical supermarket’s store shelves would need to be labeled.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration considers foods with genetic modification substantially similar to those without.

The Thailand FDA already labels food for consumers so people can at least be warned before consuming produce that could potentially lead to health problems.
