Issue Papers - IP54 - April 2014

Although genetically engineered (GE) products are used around the world, the issue becomes contentious when they are present in our food. A key part of the resulting debate centers on proposals regarding the mandatory labeling of GE food. With some states considering legislation to mandate such labels, this CAST Issue Paper (IP 54)examines arguments for and against labels, the costs involved with labeling, and experiences in countries that use mandatory labeling. Chair: Alison Van Eenennaam, Department of Animal Science, University of California - Davis. IP54, April 2014, 16 pp., FREE. Available online and in print (fee for shipping/handling).
