Federal GMO Labeling Standards

H.R. 4432, known as the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2014, amends the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act to establish a federal labeling standard for food and beverage products made with genetically modified organisms. The federal standard would prevent states from creating their own labeling standards, discouraging a network of varying rules around the country. Indiana Farm Bureau supports a national approach to the labeling of foods made from ingredients derived from biotechnology when labeling is deemed appropriate for health or safety reasons, specifically when a biotech food differs materially from a food product made from conventionally grown ingredients.
