Title: Voluntary Labeling of Foodstuffs Derived from Modern Biotechnology
Author: Stull, Mari
Keywords: genetically modified organisms (GMOs)
recombinant DNA (rDNA)
Grocery Manufacturers of America (GMA)

Publisher: AgBioForum
Citation: AgBioForum, 3(4) 2000 : 243-249.
Abstract: Grocery Manufacturers of America (GMA) contends that foods enhanced through biotechnology with recombinant DNA or rDNA-derived traits should not be labeled differently from other foods; however, it supports voluntary labeling when truthful and not misleading. This paper details criteria to ensure proper labeling, including defining and monitoring the use of avoidance terms such as “GMO-free” and addressing problems associated with applying threshold levels.
