Does Monsanto support mandatory labeling of GMO foods? If no, why not?
Ongoing studies by independent experts such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Medical Association have shown that foods containing GMOs aren’t dangerous or inferior to foods that don’t. We don’t support mandatory labeling of GMO foods, as we believe it will leave consumers confused about the safety and nutrition of the foods they enjoy every day. Here is a full statement on GMO safety from the American Association for the Advancement of Science, one of the world’s leading sources of experts on this subject. We do support a voluntary labeling approach – it allows companies who make GMO-free food to reach customers who choose to avoid GMOs.
