Chef Colicchio, Activists, Lawmakers Demand Action on GMO Labeling

WASHINGTON - Chef Tom Colicchio joined Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) today as they reintroduced bipartisan legislation that would give Americans more information about what’s in their food and how it was produced.

The bill – titled the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act – would direct the Food and Drug Administration to require that food manufacturers label foods that contain genetically modified ingredients (also called GMOs). It was reintroduced in both the Senate and the House.
