All GM products should have clear, unambiguous labels so that ordinary consumers can easily recognize them. As GM products have already entered the market with the debate over their safety still going on, the citizens right to know must be protected so that they can decide whether to accept this controversial food. Shenzhen in Guangdong province has made a decisive step forward – by August 1, all GM bean products must have easily recognizable labels. We expect the whole nation to establish a compulsory labeling system for GM products through national legislation.
