Coming to a ballot near you: Food labeling wars
New ballot initiatives in Colorado and Oregon are proposing food manufacturers label food products that contain GMOS (genetically modified organisms). Currently, products that do not have GMOs are labelled USDA organic. However, there hasn't been a single documented illness from GMOs since the technology was introduced in 1996. Organic farms are pushing for the new label initiatives in efforts for clearer transparency in the industry, however the process could be costly for companies and consumers.
