Did you see the article in the New York Times last week on the GMO-labeling campaigns currently under way? In case you didn't, here's the link and I encourage you to read it — it's an important topic for those of us who care about what's in our food and how it's produced.
From a science perspective, there are too many unanswered questions about GMOs. Earthbound Farm has always been in favor of the labeling of foods that contain GMOs as a matter of consumer choice, and we're supporters of the Just Label It campaign and the California ballot initiative.
As good as the article was, it forgot to mention something really important for people who care about keeping GMOs out of their diets: GMO foods are prohibited in certified organic food.
So yes, GMO foods should be labeled. But for now, choosing organic will give you food produced without GMO ingredients or toxic and persistent chemicals. And we think that's better for people and the planet.
