Vermont's Long History Of Food Labeling Laws

Last spring, Vermont’s House passed a bill requiring that foods containing genetically engineered products be labeled as such. The bill is now being considered by the State Senate.

And just last week, First Lady Michelle Obama unveiled new food packaging labels that are being proposed by the Food and Drug Administration.
