Recently, the U.S. House of Representatives passed Act HR 1599.
This bill has the potential to ban any state the right to label food as a genetically modified organism.
The proposed law, officially known as The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act, amends the FDA Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act, to require developers of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), in this case plants, to submit pre-market biotechnology notification.
This notification requires only the developer's determination that the food from, containing, or consisting of the GMO (GMO food) is as safe as a comparable non-GMO food.
In other words, there is no separate labeling requirement for any GMOs, as long as the company that makes it assures you it's safe.
Wouldn't you want to know what's in your food and what you're about to eat?
Listen in as Michael S. Fenster, MD, shares everything you need to know about the food labeling act.
