Guest Host: Steve Roberts

The FDA is holding public hearings this week on genetically modified foods. Consumer advocates say manufacturers should be required to identify any food that is genetically altered by providing this information on packaging labels. But industry representatives say the science just doesn’t point to any need for the extra information. A panel discusses the food products on American grocery store shelves and what you need to know about their ingredients.

Guests

  • Carol Tucker Foreman Director of food policy, Consumer Federation of America
  • Shereen El Feki Heath care and science correspondent for The Economist
  • Andrew Kimbrell International Center for Technology Assessment
  • Gene Grabowski Spokesperson for the Grocery Manufacturers of America
