Statement From the USA Rice Federation

The U.S. rice industry proudly maintains the highest food safety standards in the world – at every stage – from the farm through the mill and to the consumer. All U.S. rice is GMO-free, naturally gluten-free, and sustainably grown.  When it comes to U.S. rice, consumer concern over ‘plastic rice’ is unnecessary – it does not exist.  Consumers can always look for the ‘Grown in the USA’ mark on packages of rice to rest assured they are purchasing a safe, nutritious, and delicious food.

USA Rice is the national trade organization for the U.S. rice industry representing farmers, millers, merchants, exporters, and end-users.
