GM FOOD LABELING POLICIES OF THE U.S. AND ITS TRADING PARTNERS

Much of the international controversy of GM foods is due to labeling policies. Countries around the world have chosen different policies to label GM foods. We examine the labeling policies of several areas: the United States, the European Union, Australia, Japan, Canada, and China. We discuss each country's GM labeling policy, along with a brief history of how each country arrived at their current policy. We conclude by discussing how different policies are due to different ethical concerns of GM foods, along with the difference in perceived risks GM foods pose to health, the environment, and trade.
