Strict GM testing and labeling

China Daily | Updated: 2014-07-29 06:52

Transgenic food is concerned with public health. In the United States and some European countries, some genetically modified products have already proved detrimental to health; however, compared with the European Union's strict transgenic tests on imported foods, China lags far behind in the testing and supervising of transgenic food.

Lanzhou Morning Post, July 28

All GM products should have clear, unambiguous labels so that ordinary consumers can easily recognize them. As GM products have already entered the market with the debate over their safety still going on, the citizens' right to know must be protected so that they can decide whether to accept this controversial food. Shenzhen in Guangdong province has made a decisive step forward - by August 1, all GM bean products must have easily recognizable labels. We expect the whole nation to establish a compulsory labeling system for GM products through national legislation.
