Consumers aren’t the only ones who aren’t keen on a high-tech “solution” to GMO labeling.
A number of Senators—including presidential candidate Bernie Sanders—have some pointed questions for the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) about its proposed QR code labeling scheme.
Sanders, along with Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), Ed Markey (D-Mass.), Jon Tester (D-Mont.) and Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) fired off a letter to the GMA’s executive director, Pam Bailey, stating that they are “troubled” by the QR code scheme’s “anti-consumer loopholes.”
The Senators request a response by February 17, 2016.
