Food companies General Mills, Mars and Kellogg have announced they will begin rolling out labeling foods that containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs). In a blog entitled “We need a national solution for GMO Labeling,” General Mills Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Jeff Harmening wrote that he was disappointed that a national solution still has not been reached. But, he added, because of the impending Vermont GMO labeling law going into effect July 1, General Mills will soon have wording legislated by Vermont on the labels of many of its products. Likewise, Mars and Kellogg have announced similar action. In January, Campbell Soup announced it would label all of its foods that contained GMOs if a federal labeling solution was not achieved.
