Almost all the processed foods in the United States like cereals, snack foods, salad dressings have ingredients from plants whose DNA was manipulated in a laboratory. Environmentalists are fueling a campaign to label genetically modified crops, if not eliminated. Labeling bills have been proposed in more than a dozen states over the past year, and an appeal to the FDA to mandate labels nationally drew more than a million signatures. Supporters of labeling argue that consumers have a right to know when and which food has been modified with genes from another species.
