A bill to mandate the labeling of food and commercial feed containing genetically modified material has been pre-filed in the New Mexico State Senate.
Sponsored by Sen. Peter Wirth (D-Santa Fe) Senate Bill (SB) 18 amends the New Mexico Food Act and would apply to any food, drink or chewing gum for humans or animals. The new law defines any product containing more than one percent of a genetically modified material as a product that would require a disclosure label on the “immediate container” or wrapper. It would require the label to be “easily legible.”
