Action Alert: GMO food labeling rule

Action Alert: GMO food labeling rule

On May 3rd the USDA released its proposed regulations for the mandatory disclosure of foods produced using GMO or GE methods. These rules establish more detail on how disclosures will be implemented following the 2016 federal law requiring disclosure. The rules are the final step to securing GE food labeling in the United States at the state and federal level. The USDA proposal presents a range of options and leaves uncertainty about the final outcome on critical points. The Center for Food Safety has the breakdown of the USDA’s proposal as well as talking points for clear and concise on-package labels to identify products that have GMO ingredients. Learn more about the important issues and recommended responses from the Center for Food Safety. The time for public comment is open now until July 3rd.
