GMO Potatoes Coming Fall 2017

Three new GMO potatoes (Russet Burbank, Ranger Russet, and Atlantic) have now been approved by the USDA, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and will be making an appearance in U.S. grocery stores in Fall, 2017.

Despite FDA approval, opponents of genetically modified foods argue that the lack of safety testing on GMO foods creates a potential health concern for consumers.
