The Mexican-themed fast food chain Chipotle's has cooked up something new. No, not another burrito bowl, it's a new way of labeling its food products. 

On its website, Chipotle has begun to mark which ingredients contain genetically-modified organisms, or GMOs. Other food chains have also made changes to their menu boards, including Starbucks , which is adding calorie information for its items nationwide.
