US: Spud leaders give GMO guarded endorsement

Leaders with the National Potato Council have taken a stance in favor of biotechnology, and U.S. Potato Board leaders are scheduled to vote on the issue soon. The National Potato Council’s board of directors has officially endorsed the safety and usefulness of genetically modified technology, as well as voluntary labeling of GMO products. But unofficially, industry leaders retain concerns about how companies advancing GMO potatoes, such as J.R. Simplot, will segregate their biotech tubers and how foreign markets will react.
