The Introduction Of Biotech Foods To The Tort System: Creating A New Duty To Identify, Katharine Van Tassel 2018 Concordia University School of Law, Boise

The Introduction Of Biotech Foods To The Tort System: Creating A New Duty To Identify, Katharine Van Tassel

Katharine Van Tassel

This Article examines the question of whether an unsuspecting consumer who dies from an allergic or toxic reaction to an undisclosed biotech ingredient in food can recover damages through the tort system. The surprising answer is that recovery is very unlikely. This Article outlines why this is the case, then evaluates the merits of several potential solutions to this problem including the possible creation of a common law 'duty to identify' biotech ingredients in food. This Article is arranged as follows. First, a brief primer on the nature of biotech foods is provided. For the reader unfamiliar with the regulatory ...


Genetically Modified Plants Used For Food, Risk Assessment And Uncertainty Principles: Does The Transition From Ignorance To Indeterminacy Trigger The Need For Post-Market Surveillance?, Katharine Van Tassel 2018 Concordia University School of Law, Boise

Genetically Modified Plants Used For Food, Risk Assessment And Uncertainty Principles: Does The Transition From Ignorance To Indeterminacy Trigger The Need For Post-Market Surveillance?, Katharine Van Tassel

Katharine Van Tassel

In the context of GM foods, a genetic modification changes the biochemical cross-talk between genes, creating genetic material that has never existed before in nature. This novel genetic material can create unintended health risks, as seen with the case of the GM peas that contained a novel and unexpected allergenic protein and primed test mice to react to other allergens.6 The bottom line is that the scientific acceptance of the existence of the networked gene establishes that the FDA’s presumption that GM plant food is bioequivalent to traditional plant food is no longer scientifically supportable and that a ...


Marijuana Agriculture Law: Regulation At The Root Of An Industry, Ryan Stoa 2018 University of Florida Levin College of Law

Marijuana Agriculture Law: Regulation At The Root Of An Industry, Ryan Stoa

Florida Law Review

Marijuana legalization is sweeping the nation. Recreational marijuana use is legal in eight states. Medical marijuana use is legal in thirteen states. Only three states maintain an absolute criminal prohibition on marijuana use. Many of these legalization initiatives propose to regulate marijuana in a manner similar to alcohol, and many titles are variations of the “Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act.” For political and public health reasons the analogy makes sense, but it also reveals a regulatory blind spot. States may be using alcohol as a model for regulating the distribution, retail, and consumption of marijuana, but marijuana is much more ...

The “Fowl” Practice Of Humane Labeling: Proposed Amendments To Federal Standards Governing Chicken Welfare And Poultry Labeling Practices, LaTravia Smith 2018 American University Washington College of Law

The “Fowl” Practice Of Humane Labeling: Proposed Amendments To Federal Standards Governing Chicken Welfare And Poultry Labeling Practices, Latravia Smith

Sustainable Development Law & Policy

Chickens raised specifically for meat production are the world’s most intensively farmed land animals. Yet, the existing legal frameworks that regulate the production and labeling of poultry products in the United States allow poultry producers to mistreat chickens, falsely distinguish poultry products, and defraud conscious consumers. This article proposes unique opportunities to improve poultry welfare in the United States’ agricultural industry and offers methods to ensure the accurate labeling of poultry products.

After Repeal Of The “Small Partnership” In 2015, What Next?, Neil E. Harl 2018 Iowa State University

After Repeal Of The “Small Partnership” In 2015, What Next?, Neil E. Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

After a shocking and unannounced repeal of the “small partnership” provision in late 2015, as part of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015,1 which was enacted as part of the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility of 1982, the stunned users of that part of the 1982 Act began to raise questions. When does it go into effect? Will I end up with partnership status? Will I have a choice on what I can shift to? Will that shift be automatic or will it be an election? In the 27 months which have elapsed since enactment, not one word has ...

Gmos, International Law And Indigenous Peoples, Casandia Bellevue 2018 Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University

Gmos, International Law And Indigenous Peoples, Casandia Bellevue

Pace International Law Review

This Article sprung from a desire to discover why—despite scientific uncertainty and the oft-cited precautionary principle in international law—genetically modified organisms are still allowed to spread via international trade and natural ecological cycles. While exploring this topic, it did not take long to come across the environmental justice impacts of genetically modified crops, and their particularly disparate impact upon indigenous peoples across the globe. Not only are GMOs threatening biodiversity and our planet, but also the very existence and cultural foundations of many indigenous groups.

This Article seeks to answer the following questions: What are the international agreements ...

Citaremos en primer lugar el segundo apartado del artículo 26 (“País de origen o lugar de procedencia”) del Reglamento (UE) nº 1169/2011 que ...


The “Gallenstein” Rule: Slowly Slipping Away, Neil E. Harl 2018 Iowa State University

The “Gallenstein” Rule: Slowly Slipping Away, Neil E. Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

Most legal rules exist until the rule is repealed, the rule comes to the end of its stated term or is held to be unconstitutional. But one, the so-called “Gallenstein” Rule, which has been in existence only for 26 years, is slowly slipping into oblivion. That rule, the indirect product of the 1976 amendment of joint tenancy rules,1 did not emerge until 1991 when the case of Gallenstein v. United States was decided by the Federal District Court of the Eastern District of Kentucky and the case was later affirmed by the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.2
