Background:-

The need for GMO labeling has been a hot topic for over 20 years.  Scientific inquiry regarding the safety of GMO products has generated more questions than have been answered and has added fuel to the controversy.

After extensive review and industry input, the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Law) PL114-216) was signed into law in July 2016.  The rules impact many types of food including beer, dairy products, breakfast cereals, and others often not commonly associated with GMO ingredients by consumers.

Beginning in February 2019, food manufacturers, importers, and retailers must disclose the presence of ingredients or foods made from or containing genetically engineered ingredients when the bioengineered percentage exceeds 5 percent. 

Companies may disclose bioengineered ingredients and can use the USDA “Bioengineered”, and “Derived from Bioengineering” symbols, or text printed that includes “bioengineered food” or “contains bioengineered food ingredients”.
