United States: House passes GMO labeling bill

Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015 would prohibit state-level laws regulating the labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in food.

Thursday 30 July 2015 (2 years 6 months 23 days ago)

The U.S. House of Representatives last week voted 275-150 to pass the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015 (H.R. 1599), which would prohibit state-level laws regulating the labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in food.

The bill, which garnered the support of 45 Democrats, also would require a national standard for labeling laws that would exempt food companies from disclosing their use of GMOs. The legislation, however, allows companies to label their products as GMO-free by seeking USDA approval-a process that would operate similarly to USDA's organic certification initiative. Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts (R-KS) stated that the Senate will likely consider a companion measure this fall.
