Iowa lawmakers introduced the Consumer Labeling Information for Food Act to the House, Wednesday.

If passed, the bill would require genetically engineered food items to be labeled. The label should also include a list of ingredients and be placed on or near the food item being sold.

The bill would apply to businesses manufacturing packaged or selling unpackaged raw, cooked, or processed food items.  Small businesses with less than 20 employees or making a gross annual income of $4 million or less would be exempt from the bill.

Failure for any non-exempt businesses to comply would result in civil penalties.
