U.K. Organic Advocate Asks Retailers To Label Non-GM Foods

November 12, 2010: 09:12 AM EST

The U.K.’s Soil Association has asked retailers Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Marks and Spencer and Waitrose to follow the lead of French supermarket giant Carrefour and label foods made from animals raised on non-GM feeds. Many of the chains ban GM ingredients from their private label food products, but the ban does not include feed given to their livestock. According to the Soil Association, almost all non-organic milk, dairy products and pork in British supermarkets are produced from GM-fed animals. And that means “most consumers are unwittingly eating food produced from GM crops everyday.” Carrefour placed a non-GM logo on products when a consumer survey found that 63 percent would not eat products made from animals raised on GM feed.
