Genetically modified organisms have genetic material that has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. Labeling of foods containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is required in more than 50 countries around the world. In the US the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not require labeling of GMO products.
Many people are concerned about GMOs in their food and go out of their way to eat organically grown produce. Whether or not GMOs are harmful, I believe people have the right to know what they are eating. I believe all foods containing GMOs should be labeled and the seeds should me be made available for independent testing.
I support immediate labeling of all foods containing GMO products and I support a requirement that seeds be made available for testing as a condition of their release to the market.
The American consumer has the right to make their own decision.
