(U.S.) Connecticut GMO Measure becomes Law
- CONNECTICUT GMO MEASURE BECOMES LAW
Feedstuffs, June 27, 2013
Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy has signed into law a measure that passed the Connecticut General Assembly that requires food products that contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and that are marketed in the state carry a label that they are genetically modified.
The bill passed the Connecticut House 134-3 and the Senate unanimously.
Connecticut becomes the first state in the U.S. to have a GMO label law, although it won't become effective until four other states with a combined population of 20 million people pass similar legislation, and one of those states must border Connecticut.
