Food Wednesday: GMOs

Last week three Congressmen and a chef reintroduced a house bill urging the federal government to label food made with genetically engineered ingredients. State initiatives to label these foods have gained steam in recent years, passing or narrowly failing in several states already. Illinois also has a pending bill. But a competing bill in Congress aims to nullify these state measures. Should Americans know if their food contains genetically engineered ingredients? Joining us to talk to us about it are Kansas Congressman Mike Pompeo who sponsored one of the bills and Oregon Congressman Peter DeFazio who co-sponsored the most recent bill.(Flickr/USDAgov)
