US News reports that the Agriculture Department “has developed the first government certification and labeling for foods that are free of genetically modified ingredients.” Certification would be voluntary and, if approved, “the foods would be able to carry a ‘USDA Process Verified’ label along with a claim that they are free of GMOs.”
According to the report, the move comes as some consumer groups push for mandatory labeling of GMOs.
