Genetically engineered foods in Florida will have to be labeled as such if the state Legislature passes a bill filed this month. Rep. Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda (D-Tallahassee) says she filed the bill because people should be able to choose what they eat.
No federal law requires such labeling, but Rehwinkel Vasilinda says the movement is picking up steam with other states considering similar laws.
“There’s Republicans and Democrats, conservatives and liberals. And it’s just people that want to know what’s going on and what they’re ingesting," she says.
