GMO Labeling Passed In Connecticut First of its Kind in USA Featured

Mandatory GMO labels could become a reality in the next few ways with Connecticut leading the way. Mandatory GMO labels could become a reality in the next few ways with Connecticut leading the way.


Consumers in Connecticut have finally been granted the right to make informed decisions about GMO food since becoming the first state to pass mandatory labeling laws this month.

In a vote of 134 to three, the bill was passed with an overwhelming amount of support. However, despite being a landmark victory, it comes with a few contraints that may dampen its long term effectiveness.

For one, four other states must pass similar legislation regarding GMO labeling before Connecticut's bill can legally be put into practice. As if that wasn't enough, one of those four states must be bordering Connecticut and the sum of the population of all four states must exceed 20 million.

With at least 20 other states currently debating whether or not to label GMOs, the law's restrictions might not prove to be as large of a hurdle as expected.
