GMO labelingVermont will be the first state in the U.S. to require the labeling of genetically-modified foods.

"Every Vermonter has a right to know what is in their food," said Shap Smith, speaker of the Vermont House. "Genetically engineered foods potentially pose risks to human health and the environment. I am proud to be the first state in the nation to recognize that people deserve to know whether the food they consume is genetically modified or engineered."

Just minutes after the House voted to approve the measure 114-30, Gov. Peter Shumlin announced he would sign the bill into law.

"I am proud of Vermont for being the first state in the nation to ensure that Vermonters will know what is in their food," Shumlin said in a statement. "Vermont has led the local food movement that is better connecting people nationwide with the food they eat."
