Business Coalition Petitions FDA To Require Labeling Of GE Foods

October 4, 2011: 09:16 PM EST
A petition calling for the mandatory labeling of genetically-engineered (GE) foods was submitted to the U.S. FDA “on behalf of millions of consumers” by a coalition of  400 businesses and organizations dedicated to food safety and consumer rights. GE foods are altered at the molecular level in ways that could not happen naturally, the coalition said. Noting that consumers have a right to know what’s in their food, Just Label It - We Have a Right to Know (www.justlabelit.org) said that the FDA has rejected labeling of GE food since 1992, even though many countries worldwide require it. The agency is considering allowing the marketing of a genetically engineered salmon that grows to maturity twice as fast as normal salmon.
