JOIN US FOR A CONSENSUS DISCUSSION Study Focusing on Food Safety and Food Labeling

The League of Women Voters (LWV) of the Utica-Rome Metro Area will host a meeting Thursday, March 6, on the "Hot Topic" issue of Food Safety and Food Labeling, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Sammons Room at New Hartford Public Library. This is part of a national LWV (LWVUS) Agricultural (Ag) Study and discussion will focus on risks to food safety, current labeling standards, including foods developed using any new technology, e.g., genetically engineered and nanotech, and the role of government responsibility in those areas. The program is free and public participation is encouraged. Background information is available at lwv.org/member-resources/agriculture-update  and participants are encouraged to read the resources related to food safety and food labeling as listed for each question to be discussed.
