GMO Labeling Law Leads To Shortages Of Certain Non-Compliant Foods In Vermont

July 10, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Vermont’s tough GMO ingredient labeling law took effect on July 1, and has so far resulted in a shortage of certain products on store shelves in the state. More than 3,000 products are effectively barred from being sold in the state because they do not comply with the law. Food manufacturers have informed grocers that about 3,500 products will not be relabeled to comply with the law, according to a representative of a nationwide grocery chain with 15 Vermont stores. Meanwhile, the U.S. Congress approved a compromise food and biotech industries-friendly GMO labeling bill that – if signed by Pres. Obama – would supersede the Vermont law and any other state laws regulating GMO labeling. Obama is expected to sign the legislation into law.
