Abstract: This paper will address the U.S. response to the present and future use of the genetic alteration of food through the analysis of the pioneer food product-- the Flavr-Savr tomato-- which was the first genetically altered food to be approved for the United States market. As the first bioengineered produce to clear regulatory hurdles, the Flavr-Savr required governmental agencies to adapt their current standards to a new realm of food and agriculture and to consider how genetically altered foods fit into the United States regulatory scheme. By tracing the regulatory history of the Flavr-Savr and examining both agency and public response to genetically altered food products, one can also project the likely regulatory future of genetically altered foods.
