Parties End Suit Challenging Vermont Law

Sep 07, 2016

IDFA, the Grocery Manufacturers of America and two other industry groups agreed last week with the state of Vermont to end the lawsuit that challenged the state’s labeling law for products containing genetically modified ingredients (GMOs).

“Because the federal GMO disclosure legislation preempts state laws, continuing to challenge Vermont’s law was unnecessary,” said Clay Hough, IDFA senior group vice president and counsel. “We’re pleased that the trade associations and the state were able to reach an agreement to have the case dismissed, which was approved by the court.”

The National Association of Manufacturers and SNAC International were the other plaintiffs in the suit.
