Bernie Sanders argues that food labels should list if it’s GMO or not.
“The Senate late on Monday agreed to consider an amendment by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) to the farm bill that would let states require clear labels on any food or beverage containing genetically engineered ingredients…
In the United States, Sanders said, food labels already must list more than 3,000 ingredients ranging from high-fructose corn syrup to trans-fats. Unlike 49 countries around the world, however, foods that contain genetically engineered ingredients do not have to be labeled in the U.S.”
Update: Senate rejected the amendment this morning because eff-you. It’s not just wall street and oil companies that own our politicians, it’s also the farm lobby (e.g., Monsanto, et al.).
