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