This is Part III of a III part series.
Under U.S. law and regulations, announced in 1992 and reaffirmed in November 2015, labels for foods containing genetically engineered ingredients are required when "there is a material difference -- such as a different nutritional profile -- between the GE product and its non-GE counterpart."
Research shows and the Food and Drug Administration affirms that there is no safety or compositional difference between GM foods and their conventional counterparts. But some people believe there is a difference, or have other motives such as a desire to put a halt to genetic engineering or promote other forms of food production such as organic agriculture, and therefore believe labels are appropriate.
