We recently posted some information from experts about labeling and why GM products are not currently labeled. You can find that information here:
- Why are products containing GMO plants not clearly labeled in the grocery store?
- Regardless as to whether or not you believe GMOs are good or bad-- what is the harm in labeling them so that consumers can make their own decisions? It is the number one thing you mention on the first welcome page of your website..that you "respect people around the world and their right to choose"
Below are excerpts from the experts' posts:
"[Q]uestions about labeling are great questions. We are often accused of being against labeling. We are not. We want consumers to know about GMOs and support the right of consumers to choose food that is healthy and nutritious. What we cannot support is a label that conveys to consumers that foods made from the farmers’ crops grown with our seeds are less safe or less nutritious than or somehow different from conventional or organic food. We believe a government requirement to label GM food would do just this. Hundreds of independent studies have confirmed the safety of GMOs (available here), and regulatory authorities around the world agree.”
“When it comes to hiding, it's actually quite the opposite. There's no need to label a product when there's nothing to hide or define as different—in other words, no scientific justification to provide a label for GMOs."
