The New Mexico legislature has tabled a bill that would require GMO labels on foods and feed. Last Thursday, the New Mexico Senate voted down a committee report on the proposal. It had passed the public affairs committee earlier last week.
According to FoodNavigator.com, New Mexico Senate sponsor Peter Wirth, a Democrat, said although the GMO labeling bill died last week they are confident similar initiatives in other states WILL make it.
A bill introduced in the Missouri legislature (SB 155) would require all meat and fish produced in the state that is genetically modified and sold for human consumption to be labeled. A handful of other states also have GMO labeling proposals pending.
