Proposed bill in Missouri would require GMO labeling

The following is an excerpt.

Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, D-District 5, has proposed SB 155, which would require labeling on all genetically modified meat and fish (GMOs).

SB 155 amends Chapter 196 of the Missouri Revised Statues. The bill was introduced earlier this month.

Nasheed said she hopes the bill will increase awareness about GMOs.

“Right now, approximately 75 percent of the food in the supermarket is genetically modified,” she said. “People don’t know about it because there are no requirements for labeling.”

Nasheed said she proposed the bill because she believes people have a right to know about the food they are consuming.
