Sounds like a major headache, and it already has become one:
At Mehuron’s Supermarket in Waitsfield, manager Bruce Hyde Jr. said he and his team were ready for the state’s new law requiring genetically modified foods to be labeled as such. But uncertainties abound.
Hyde said stores like his have to rely on national food companies to apply labels to products with genetically modified ingredients. But Congress could act next week on a less stringent federal bill that would pre-empt Vermont’s, which went into effect Friday.
“It could all be changed a month from now,” Hyde said.
