Groups Representing GM Food Producers Ask FDA’s Help On Voluntary Product Labeling

February 6, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
A new coalition of 28 groups representing farmers, seed companies and other food producers that rely on genetically modified ingredients has joined the Grocery Manufacturers Association to  ask the FDA to develop guidelines for labeling – voluntarily – GM products. The GMA, which spent a lot of money torpedoing GM labeling ballot initiatives in California and Washington, is now  acknowledging that consumers want to know if their food contains GM ingredients. The coalition admitted that getting the FDA involved might pre-empt future state ballot initiatives, which could turn as messy and costly as those in California and Washington.
