U.S. senators have struck a deal when it comes to the labeling of genetically modified organisms in food products.
While some in Hawaii support the proposed law, others oppose it.
“We are grateful to the senators who came together on a solution that will end the confusion and prevent a patchwork of labeling laws across the country,” said Bennette Misalucha, Hawaii Crop Improvement Association’s executive director. “This balanced, sensible approach represents a compromise that should satisfy all sides.”
The deal recently announced by the Republican and Democrat leaders of the U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee comes one week before Vermont’s mandatory GMO labeling law goes into effect, and requires nationwide labeling of GMOs in packaged food.
