NPA has been at the forefront of the discussion regarding Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) Labeling for almost 20 years.
Here are the guiding principles for NPA's stance on GMO Labeling:
- NPA believes consumers have the right to be informed whether genetically modified components are in their foods and dietary supplements.
- NPA supports and encourages the voluntary labeling of non GMO foods and dietary supplements.
- NPA believes that consideration of federal law promoting a uniform standard is warranted to avoid separate standards for GMO labeling at the state level.
- NPA opposes a private enforcement provision, which encourages abusive legislation, to impose compliance.
- NPA supports FDA consistently reviewing the concept of bio-equivalency of genetically modified ingredients in light of the most recent scientific studies.
