or Not to Label ... That is the Question
One of the biggest controversies brewing in the field of genetic
engineering (besides cloning of course) is whether to label foods
that use genetic engineering in their production process.
The Federal Food and Drug Administration()
has a policy in place that does not require foods with GE ingredients
to be labeled. The agency recently updated that policy by issuing
guidelines for voluntary labeling of these foods. There are a number
of advocacy groups that would like the FDA's policy changed.
