Public opinion on GMOs is often driven by misinformation and myths, despite scientific consensus that GMOs are safe to eat and nutritionally equivalent to their non-GMO counterparts. While some brands, like Campbell’s and Betty Crocker, have sought to educate consumers about GMOs rather than play into their fears, others are simply spreading confusion.
Many brands tout their products as non-GMO even when their products contain ingredients that couldn’t possibly contain GMOs to begin with.
To help stem the tide of dishonest labeling, GMO Answers developed a series highlighting products commonly labeled as non-GMO despite having no GMO alternatives. Orange juice, yogurt, microwave popcorn, and even pasta makers are all caving to pressure and misinforming the public.
