Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
U.S. GMO food labeling bill passes Senate
Reuters - 7/8/2016.
By Chris Prentice - The U.S. Senate on Thursday approved legislation that would for the first time require food to carry labels listing genetically-modified ingredients, which labeling supporters say could create loopholes for some U.S. crops.
Senate Passes A GMO Labeling Bill That The Food Industry Likes
National Public Radio - 7/8/2016.
By Dan Charles. The Salt - After months of bargaining and backroom arguments, the Senate has voted in favor of a new national standard for labeling food that contains ingredients from genetically modified crops. The essence of the deal: Companies will have to disclose their GMO ingredients, but they won't have to put that information right on the label.
GMO Labeling Legislation Clears Another Hurdle
National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition - 7/8/2016.
For months, the Senate has struggled to reach agreement on a “GMO labeling bill”, which would determine if and how genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are marked on food packaging. The pressure became especially intense as legislators worked to beat pending mandatory GMO labeling legislation in Vermont, which officially became effective July 1, 2016. After defeating a weak version of the bill on July 7, the Senate voted 63-30 to pass a somewhat stronger compromise bill, which was hammered out behind closed doors by Senate Agriculture Committee Chair and Ranking Member Pat Roberts (R-KS) and Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) in consultation with industry groups.
Don’t be fooled by Senate’s GMO fake-labeling bill
BizWest - 7/8/2016.
By Steven Hoffman - Pro-GMO labeling supporters were planning on celebrating on July 1, the date when Vermont’s legislation became the first mandatory GMO labeling law of the land.
