Food Fight: Businesses, Consumers, & Advocacy Groups Square Off Over GMO Labeling

Food Fight: Businesses, Consumers, & Advocacy Groups Square Off Over GMO Labeling

The battle over the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in the US food supply has raged on for years. The fight pits advocacy groups, such as Just Label It and The Center for Food Safety, against major crop and food producers such as Monsanto and PepsiCo. Advocacy groups argue that consumers have a right to know. Industry groups opine that two decades of research has suggested GMOs are safe and thus labels are unnecessary and will scare consumers.
