Campbell Soup has said it will advocate for federal legislation that would require all foods and beverages regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to be clearly and simply labeled for GMOs. With the decision, Campbell is the first major food manufacturer to support mandatory nationwide labeling. Generally, the food industry is pressing lawmakers to keep labeling voluntary on the national level and to pre-empt state labeling laws.
