I’m speaking with Fabio Parasecoli about his new book, Gastronativism: Food, Identity, Politics, at the Museum of the City of New York at a session chaired by Krishnendu Ray at 6:30 pm. Information is here and the ticketing link is here. This is a preview of the museum’s forthcoming exhibit, Food in New York: Bigger Than the Plate (opening September 16) and is co-presented by MOFAD (Museum of Food and Drink).
USDA issues guidance for non-GMO labeling
The USDA has issued a guide for meat and poultry sellers explaining what they need to do to claim that their products are non-GMO. This, apparently, will do.
What, you may ask, are they to do if their products are GMO? Here’s your answer.
That USDA is allowing the use of non-GMO rather than non-bioengineered must be considered some kind of miracle or oversight.
I can’t wait to see if meat sellers use any of this.
