UPDATE: MARCH 20, 2015 A genetically modified non-browning Arctic apple has been approved for sale in Canada, just weeks after it received similar approval in the U.S.
Remember the old saying 'An apple a day keeps the doctor away'? Well, we may have to rethink that. Last week, the United States Department of Agriculture approved two new genetically engineered apple varieties and they will likely be coming to a supermarket near you soon. How can you recognize them? You can't. Just like GMO sweet corn, these apples require no label.
