‘Extra labeling only confuses the consumer,’ biotech spokesperson says

That the Food and Drug Administration is opposed to labeling foods that are genetically modified is no surprise anymore, but a report in the Washington Post indicates the FDA won’t even allow food producers to label their foods as being free of genetic modification.

In reporting that the FDA will likely not require the labeling of genetically modified salmon if it approves the food product for consumption, the Post’s Lyndsey Layton notes that the federal agency “won’t let conventional food makers trumpet the fact that their products don’t contain genetically modified ingredients.”

  4. All the more reason to find ways of growing your own foods, and it can be done in a NYC flat, or a rural area. Square foot gardening and container gardening have been around for ages – time to slap a cog into the corporate food wheel and eat your own. Grow your own. This is such insanity, its surreal at its best.

  6. I am at a loss for words. The labeling of foods is the ONLY way we as consumers can protect ourselves. It makes me sick to see so our government officials and agencies in the wallets of big food companies.
    Keep taking FDA…we will have the final say in the end. Which side will you be on?

  7. WAIT!

    To the people who think they will be growing their own food!

  11. First of all I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Cheers! Haus Kreditrechner
