Researchers at Washington State University’s Agricultural Research Center call an initiative to label genetically modified foods “useless information,” citing a lack of clarity and supporting research.
“The information that is on a product should be information that is useful to people,” commented the center’s Associate Director Michael Kahn. “You can’t put everything on there.”
Supporters of I-522 said Tuesday their mission was not out of concerns for food safety, but rather food information. Its campaign pointed to labeling on fish caught in the wild or raised on a farm as a similarly labeled product.
However, Kahn and Assistant Professor Michael Neff believe information on GMOs is misleading.
“To put on a label that says ‘may contain GMO’, does not tell people what type of GMO may be in there,” Naff explained.
