Vermont passed a bill requiring GMO labeling

Posted on 25 April 2014

Vermont became the first state in the nation Friday to require that genetically modified foods be labeled as such at all of its retail stores, the United Press International reports.  

Last November, as NPR reported, voters in Washington state defeated a similar bill to mandate labels on genetically modified food, after out-of-state companies like Monsanto, Coca-Cola and PepsiCo poured millions into an anti-labeling campaign. 

The new Vermont law requires that foods containing genetically modified organisms sold at stores carry a label identifying them as produced through "genetic engineering," NPR reported in a separate story. The bill also stipulates that no genetically engineered food products may carry labels reading "natural" or "all natural."
