Congress was back in session this week, and dairy producers and dairy cooperative officials were there to discuss GMO labeling.

Politico reports the National Milk Producers Federation members want a bill that establishes a national labeling standard that trumps state laws and sets disclosure standards on foods that contain genetically engineered ingredients. The organization also want to exempt products from animals that consume genetically modified feeds from the labeling requirements, including cheese, meat, and eggs.
