64 Countries Require GMO Labeling. The US Doesn’t.

“Currently, 64 countries around the world require labeling of genetically engineered foods. Unlike most other developed countries – such as 15 nations in the European Union, Japan, Australia, Brazil, Russia and even China – the U.S. has no laws requiring labeling of genetically engineered foods.”
Just Label It

Maybe we will have to start saying, “the U.S., except for the state of Vermont…” But even then:

“[Vermont’s] labeling requirement wouldn’t apply to many food categories, including meat, milk, restaurant fare and raw agricultural commodities that aren’t grown with genetically modified seed.”

And:

“[Vermont’s] law would also ban food makers from advertising products as “natural” when they contain GMO ingredients.”

Are GMOs natural?

    It’s embarrassing really–other countries think we’re idiots. I used to go abroad every year to do research and was always pleased when people didn’t peg me as a U.S. person.
