The House of Representatives, on a strong bipartisan vote (306-117), passed the historic genetically modified organism labeling bill which has been sent to the White House for President Obama’s signature.
The White House indicated prior to the vote that the president would sign the bill. A White House spokesperson says, “While there is broad consensus that foods from genetically engineered crops are safe, we appreciate the bipartisan effort to address consumers’ interest in knowing more about their food, including whether it includes ingredients from genetically engineered crops.”
