Obama Signs Labeling Bill

Some are calling this the ‘Dark Labeling’ law due to the fact that it will allow producers to use a QR code instead of a plain English label. See this story about what the QR code might come to represent.

President Obama on Friday signed a bill that will require labeling of genetically modified ingredients for the first time. The legislation will cover most food packages.
