Bill seeks to block mandatory GMO food labeling by states
Reuters
A Republican congressman from Kansas introduced legislation Wednesday that would nullify efforts in multiple states to require labeling of genetically modified foods. The bill, dubbed the "Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act," was drafted by U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo and is aimed at overriding bills in about two dozen states that would require foods made with genetically engineered crops to be labeled as such.

Editor's note: The American Frozen Food Institute is a member of the Coalition for Safe Affordable Food, which is supporting the federal GMO labeling legislation highlighted in this story.
