Here’s A First Look At The Label That Must Appear On All GMO Foods By 2022, New Food Economy, 20 December 2018
The new rule, for instance, exempts products that come from animals fed with bioengineered ingredients, like milk, meat and eggs.
[The new rule] stops short of covering highly processed ingredients that are derived from genetically engineered crops, such as corn syrup, vegetable oil, and “refined” sugar from sugarbeets. Last year, 94 percent of soybeans, and 92 percent of corn grown in the United States were genetically modified; at last count, so were 95 percent of sugarbeets. But oil and sugar derived from these crops don’t have to be labeled.
Greg Jaffe of the Center for Science in the Public Interest:
“The message it sends is confusion.”
Tell me that wasn’t done on purpose, the confusion. Look at that label’s lovely pastoral scene, not a “GMO” in sight.
