Vermont GMO Enforced by bounty hunters starting July 1st

UPDATE:  See Is the Vermont GMO law, null and void?

Vermont’s new law for foods produced with genetically engineering is confusing. Do you need to worry now? Short answer yes!  But you will have to decide your own deadline July 1st or Dec 31st 2016.

 

One vote for July 1st:

Vermont’s Act 120 and CP 121 requires all food product with genetic engineer and offered for retail sale in Vermont to be properly labeled by July 1, 2016.


One vote for Dec 31st:

Out of recognition that some food products have longer shelf lives, CP 121 creates a six -month “safe harbor” … through December 31, 2016. (Vermont State Attorney General, William H. Sorrell  memorandum)


One vote for uncertainty:

Bounty hunters could come after you from day one if you are not compliant with Vermont GMO labeling law, warns attorney ( Elaine Watson+article @ foodnavigator-usa)

Bottom line. Get started.  Get you labels compliant with Vermont’s law.
