Mandatory GMO Labeling For Food Products

The US Is Poised to Pass a New Law Making GMO Labeling Mandatory for Food Products

President Barack Obama is expected to sign a piece of bipartisan legislation that establishes nationwide rules for food companies. The legislation was delivered to his desk this week (July 14) after passing both houses of Congress. By codifying those rules, the federal government would supersede and preempt state laws, eliminating the risk of a cumbersome patchwork of requirements for companies.
