55 members of Congress sent FDA a letter in support of a petition filed by the Center for Food Safety to require labeling of genetically modified foods. While there is no reliable data demonstrating safety issues with currently marketed GMO food products, the public sentiment and the growing momentum of consumer right to know legal theories seem to be pushing against current labeling policy. What becomes the critical issue, should such a policy shift occur, is communicating what GMO food truly means. For example, would consumers accept high-oleic oils that result in lower saturated fat levels and maintain low levels of trans fat – but are highly refined in a manner that essentially eliminates the plant protein from the product? While seed breeders have been using chemical mutagenesis for decades without protest, will a difference be drawn between transgenic recombinant techniques and self-cloned or single species recombinant engineering?
