Is it safe? Information on genetically engineered foods for consumers
This fact sheet provides consumers with an introductory overview to genetically engineered (GE) foods (commonly referred to as GMOs -- genetically modified organisms, also called transgenic crops or animals), as well as safety information on these products. Information on labeling of GE foods is also included. The term "genetically engineered foods" or "GE foods" will be used throughout this fact sheet as this is one of the terms that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) states is scientifically accurate for these types of foods.
