Consensus Question 11 asked about the labeling of foods containing ingredients made using new technologies, gmo's and nanotechnology. Was there no consensus on that question? The new agriculture position states that " The League supports consumer education about labeling of foods developed using any new technology." but nothing specifically about labeling these foods.
My league did much research on new technologies, compared US labeling with EU labeling, and strongly felt that gmo foods should be labeled. I realize that other leagues may have come to a different conclusion. Can the national Agriculture Committee please provide background on how that position was determined and whether local leagues can advocate for gmo labeling based on the new position. Thank you.
