Legislation for Labeling Biotech Food

U.S. Representative Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) has introduced "The Consumer Right to Know Food Labeling Act of 2010," which would require labeling for food that contains genetically engineered (GE) or cloned animal products. The bill would amend the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and Meat Inspection Act. The bill also directs USDA and FDA to develop and implement a recordkeeping audit trail applicable to “any person that prepares, stores, handles, or distributes a cloned product for retail sale.” A copy of the bill is here.
