President Obama finalized S.764 by signing the GMO labeling bill into law. On the surface it appears that this is positive for everyone who has been pushing for GMO labeling. However, the fine print reveals another story. The final mandate won’t be completed for two years and there are lots of gray areas. One point is that it is yet to be determined what percentage a food product has to contain GMO ingredients to even require labeling. If the USDA says any food with less than 1% or 2% is derived from a GM ingredient they may very likely say that no QR bar code will be required. It could be a big loophole for lots of products. In addition, there is no real enforcement teeth to this bill. No penalties or fines are established. No recalls will be allowed for companies violating the law. Worst of all, no state will ever be able to address the GMO issue as far as packaging is concerned.

This will be the primary third party organization that will manage all the QR codes for the big food conglomerates.
