On Gardening: Sides still wrangling on GMO food labeling

Published Thursday June 30

The battle over food labeling continues.

In the last week of June a USA Senate committee proposed legislation that would mandate labeling of foods that contain genetically engineered ingredients.

Side note: Some news reports refer to labels for “genetically modified organisms” or “GMOs,” but the correct term is “genetically engineered organisms” or “GEOs.” Genetic modification includes hybrids that result from human intervention or natural processes, all within a single species. In comparison, genetic engineering involves transferring genes from one species to another. That’s very different.

Article length: About 600 words.
