General Mills joins Campbells, will label GMO ingredients

The battle over labeling food products that contain GMO ingredients has been brewing in Washington, as I wrote earlier this year. But today, food giant General Mills announced it will join Campbell’s and start labeling which of its products contain genetically modified ingredients.

Here's what food labels could look like in Vermont-- noting GMOs-- unless Congress moves to stop it.
Here’s what food labels could look like in Vermont– noting GMOs.

This has to be seen as a victory, hopefully, for the people who have been campaigning mightily to get companies to disclose what’s in their processed foods. 

“We know that some consumers are interested in knowing which products contain GMO ingredients,” said Jeff Harmening, chief operating officer for U.S. retail at General Mills, USA Today reported. That’s a bit of an understatement.

Vermont has passed a law requiring such labeling. The anti-labeling forces have been pushing Congress to negate that law with the food industry arguing against individual state standards.

Now it seems the Vermont law may be having an impact far beyond that state’s borders, as some had hoped.

Personally I do not worry a great deal about GMOs, but I know many, many people do and so I support efforts to get GMOs disclosed on labels.
