Votes on GMO label requirements getting closer in New York Legislature

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y.—A proposal to require labels on food containing genetically modified ingredients is getting closer to a vote in New York Legislature.

The labeling legislation was backed by the State Assembly’s Committee on codes on Tuesday.

The committee is a key panel that often signs off on bills before a vote of the full chamber.

Supporters say labels would inform consumers, while many agricultural and food companies disagree.

The opposing side says evidence shows GMO foods are safe and that labels will raise prices.
