This is because there is currently no legislation that requires food producers to report if there are GMOs, (genetically modified organisms), in their products. GMOs, are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered with DNA from viruses, bacteria or other plants and animals and do not occur from natural processes or crossbreeding.
