 |  By: Wyatt Bechtel

President Obama signed into law a bill requiring the labeling on foods with genetically modified organism (GMO) ingredients.

According to a statement by the White House, Senate Bill 764 directs the Secretary of Agriculture to “establish a national mandatory bioengineered food disclosure standard.”

A number of agriculture organizations and food manufacturing associations applauded the passage of the bill as it made its way through the Senate and House earlier in July.
