Ledge Light Health District supports labeling of genetically modified food
The Board of Directors of Ledge Light Health District has unanimously passed a resolution supporting labeling requirements for foods that have been altered, grown or processed as a genetically modified product.
The resolution, approved last month, was initiated by board member Bob Burns, owner of Aiki Farms in Ledyard. Burns worked with Ledge Light staff to develop a resolution that acknowledged genetically modified food labeling as a positive step for public health.
"With the adoption of this resolution, we are not taking a position on whether genetically modified foods are good or bad," Director of Health Baker Salsbury said in a news release. "We are taking a stand that an informed public has a right to know."
He said the resolution will be shared with the Connecticut Chapter of the Northeast Organic Farming Association in support of its efforts to require labeling in Connecticut.
