WASHINGTON (DTN) -- State or local governments would not be able to require labels on foods containing genetically-engineered ingredients if a federal bill introduced Wednesday becomes law.

Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., announced House introduction of the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act at a news conference Wednesday. The bill, which would modify the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, would establish a federal labeling standard for genetically-engineered (GE) ingredients, commonly known as GMOs. It would give sole authority to the Food and Drug Administration to require mandatory labeling on such foods if they are ever found to be unsafe.
