Biotech food labeling
Biotechnologically derived foods should be allowed to be marketed as "organic" when appropriate and should not be subject to unnecessary and misleading labeling requirements.
That's what the American Frozen Food Institute (AFFI) urged to the Codex Alimentarius Commission an international food safety regulatory body. At stake is labeling of products in international marketing. "Organic" should refer to foods grown without use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers AFFI contends. Genetically modified organisms therefore can be grown organically and so labeled. AFFI was responding to Codex's draft recommendation on labeling of foods obtained though biotechnology.
