The US Senate passed a compromise bill last night that might change the way you look at a label on your food.
The Senate approved a new label, a QR code in fact, that would be on food products that you would scan and then a website would tell you if that item contained corn, soybeans or beets that had been genetically modified. Congressman Darin LaHood says the other approach to let each individual state set label laws is unworkable and it could hurt the state’s economy.
LaHood says the other approach to let each individual state set label laws is unworkable, but he thinks the House did the best job on how to label foods.
LaHood says he prefers the House bill but will give the Senate bill a chance.
Republican Mark Kirk voted in favor of the bill, Democrat Dick Durbin voted no.
