There's a lot of consumer confusion when it comes to food labeling. Often, that's deliberate on the part of manufacturers. For example, do you know the difference between "organic" and "all natural"?" Organic foods have rigorous standards to meet for certification; "all natural" foods have undergone minimal processing but may contain preservatives and genetically engineered ingredients (GMOs). Buying food has become much more complicated over the past few decades, and staying abreast of information is certainly challenging. Here's a useful post from Whole Foods about food labeling www.wholefoodsmarket.com/about-our-p
ro
ducts/organic-food/organic-food-faqs
This link goes to the website of the advocacy group that is working to require labeling of foods containing GMOs in the US called Just Label It! justlabelit.org/ Genetically modified crops are banned in the EU. Another useful site pertains to food safety and posts news about food recalls, foodborne illnesses, and more daily www.foodsafetynews.com/
