U.S. GMO food labeling bill passes Senate
Reuters - 7/8/2016.

Senate Passes A GMO Labeling Bill That The Food Industry Likes
National Public Radio - 7/8/2016.
By Dan Charles. The Salt - After months of bargaining and backroom arguments, the Senate has voted in favor of a new national standard for labeling food that contains ingredients from genetically modified crops. The essence of the deal: Companies will have to disclose their GMO ingredients, but they won't have to put that information right on the label.
