Push to label GMOs in Florida

In Florida there’s a renewed push to label our food that contains genetically modified organisms or GMO’s. Some say consumers have the right to know while others say so much of our food is already genetically engineered under our government’s watch that it’s no big deal.

Florida House Bill 1 deals with genetically engineered foods and would make it mandatory that genetically engineered raw agricultural commodities and processed foods made with or derived from genetically engineered ingredients be labeled.

The bill was authored by State Representative Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda. The bill is in committee and is being discussed this legislative session.
