GMO Labeling Update: What You Need to Know

Here at Nature’s Corner, we believe in wholesome food made with trusted ingredients and NO GMOs. We take great pride in our 100% organic produce and our aisles filled with delicious Non-GMO, organic, gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options and so much more! Recently, news broke that a GMO Labeling Bill was signed by President Obama, however, while this may sound like great news, the new bill is receiving a ton of criticism.

The bill, which is often referred to as The DARK Act, short for “Denying Americans the Right to Know,” is allowing companies to use QR codes or 1-800 numbers as a form of GMO labeling, forcing consumers to scan the code or make a phone call to get information instead of labeling it clearly on the product. Opponents of The DARK Act believe that this is not only misleading, but also discriminatory to those who don’t have access to the technology needed to access the off-label info.

GMOs are estimated to be in 75-80% of food here in the U.S. Luckily, you can always find Non-GMO options right here at your trusted source for all things healthy since 1995, Nature’s Corner Natural Market. 🙂
