Get the Real Facts on U.S. GMO Labeling Requirements!

 

GMOs in food products are regulated by the FDA under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the Public Health Service Act. The United States does not have any federal legislation that is specific to genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Rather, GMOs are regulated pursuant to health, safety, and environmental legislation governing conventional products. The U.S. is the world’s leading producer of genetically modified (GM) crops.  In 2012, of the 170.3 million hectares of biotech crops globally, the United States accounted for 69.5 million, over 40% of the total.
