GMO Labeling

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.
