US state rejects GMO labelling

The US state of New Hampshire's House of Representatives has rejected legislation that would have required the labelling of foods containing genetically modified ingredients. The bill declared that on or after July 1st 2014 "any human or animal food offered for retail sale in this state shall be deemed misbranded if such food is, or may have been, entirely or partially produced with genetic engineering and such fact is not disclosed. Processed food would have required labelling to the effect that it was "partially produced with genetic engineering". The two north-eastern states of Maine and Connecticut approved GMO labelling legislation last year, but with caveats that require other states to act before the laws take effect. Some 26 states considered some form of GMO labelling last year and the number is expected to rise this year.
