HB14-1058 - Voluntary Labeling Genetically Engineered Food

Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning Voluntary Labeling For Food That Does Not Contain Genetically Engineered Material.

The bill defines "genetically engineered" and permits a person who sells, distributes, or offers for sale food in Colorado to label the food as not containing genetically engineered material if:

  • The food contains less than one percent genetically engineered material; and
  • The person submits an affidavit to the department of public health and environment affirming that to the best of the person's knowledge the food contains less than one percent genetically engineered material, or, if the food is a raw agricultural commodity, the food was not grown, raised, or produced through genetic engineering and was segregated from goods that may have been genetically engineered.

A person who falsely labels food sold, distributed, or offered for sale in Colorado as not containing genetically engineered material violates the prohibition against misbranding food.
