The proposal will require food companies to disclose their GMO ingredients, but that information doesn’t have to be on the packaging. It’s a compromise, and neither side is all that enthused.
This is complete BS. Congress basically negated Vernont’s law requiring GMO foods to be labeled and allows food companies to put a scan-code instead, that you have to scan with your phone. This is not a “compromise”, it’s on overturning of a law that was democratically voted into existence.

One thought on “Congress Just Passed A GMO Labeling Bill. Nobody’s Super Happy About It”
I am pleased with this bill. Is it perfect? No, it never will be unless more people start calling their congressmen and women. But for now is a step. People who genuinely care if their food is genetically modified will take the time to scan the code. Although less fortunate people without smart phones will continue to be denied access to resources.
