GM Label Declaration Will be Unnecessary for Eggs

09/21/2021

In accordance with the proposed rules requiring labeling of products containing GM ingredients, eggs from flocks fed conventional diets will not fall under the mandate. In the U.S. hens are invariably fed diets containing GM corn and soybean meal processed from GM soybeans with the exception of eggs produced under the USDA Certified Organic or non-GMO verified programs.

 

It is widely acknowledged that there is no risk or deleterious effect from consuming foods containing GM ingredients.  In 2016 the National Academy of Sciences conducted an extensive review involving more than one thousand studies that demonstrated no harmful effect from GM products.  The World Health Organization, the American Association for Advancement of Science and the E.U. Commission have all confirmed that GM foods are innocuous.
