The Non-GMO Project Verified label recently cleared a regulatory hurdle for labeling meat and liquid egg products. This is the first time that the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), a branch of the USDA that regulates such products, has approved a non-GMO label claim.
The approval from FSIS provides a measure of confidence to companies that currently offer Non-GMO Project Verified meat or liquid eggs.
For products subject to FSIS oversight, the Non-GMO Project Verified label has been slightly reformatted and will include text that clarifies how animal products meet the Non-GMO Project standard.
