Questionnaire results in on GMO labeling

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- Vermont attorney general says a questionnaire has found that most participants think information about genetically engineered food should be placed near the product's nutrition facts label or ingredients list.

The survey was conducted after the legislature passed a law requiring the labelling of genetically modified foods. The law takes effect in mid-2016.

The Grocery Manufacturers Association and other industry groups have sued to overturn the law.

The attorney general's office is responsible for promulgating the rules to implement the new law.

The questionnaire was open between June 4 and June 30 and included more than 2,200 responses.
