Boxer, DeFasio, Many Other Legislators Sponsor Legislation Requiring FDA To Label Genetically Engineered Foods

April 30, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
United States Senator Barbara Boxer and Congressman Peter DeFasio introduced the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act, a bipartisan legislation seeking to require the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to label genetically engineered foods so that consumers can make informed decisions about what they eat. Other legislators, including senators Lisa Murkowski, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Richard Blumenthal, have co-sponsored the legislation. Results of surveys showed more than 90 percent of Americans support labeling of GE foods. FDA's current regulations require labeling of more than 3,000 ingredients, additives, and processes, but the agency has so far refused to label GE foods.
