Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) Labeling in the U.S.

Alicia S. Anino

Abstract


To label Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) or treat them equally with non-genetically modified foods without labeling is a contentious issue, not only in the United States, but around the world, and has been ever since these engineered foods were introduced in the late 20th century (Huffman, 2004). This article seeks to objectively look at the issues from those that want to label GMOs and from those that are against it; as well as offer suggestions for moving forward to satisfy parties on both sides of the issue.
