Connecticut House Passes GMO Food Labeling Measure

May 21, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
The Connecticut Senate nearly unanimously passed legislation that would require many food products to be labeled if they contained genetically modified organisms. The prospects for the bill in the House of Representatives are not rosy, according to observers. And even if it becomes law, it would not take effect until at least three other states pass similar legislation. GMO labeling bills are pending in at least 12 states. The bill exempts restaurant food sold for immediate consumption and alcoholic beverages and farm products sold at farmer's markets, roadside stands and pick-your-own farms.
