CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s House is considering a bill requiring genetically modified foods to be labeled.

The House is scheduled to vote on the bill Wednesday.

Supporters argue New Hampshire residents have a right to know whether their food is produced with genetic engineering, but critics say the federal Food and Drug Administration has not mandated the labeling because it determined the foods are safe.

The House Environment and Agriculture Committee favors killing the bill, but a minority argues it is time for states like New Hampshire to lead regardless of the federal position on the issue.
