On Thursday, July 14, 2016 The House of Representatives voted for the required labeling of foods containing genetically engineered ingredients. This was the last hurdle before the bill goes to the White House, where it is expected that President Obama will sign it into law.
If passed into law, the bill will require food manufacturers use one of three forms of labels to inform consumers if GMO (genetically engineered) ingredients are used in products. Growers of fruits and vegetables that are genetically engineered will also be required to provide GMO labeling.
“Today’s vote is a resounding victory not only for consumers and common sense but also for the tremendous coalition of agricultural and food organizations that came together in unprecedented fashion to get this solution passed,” said Pamela G. Bailey, chief executive of the Grocery Manufacturers Association.
