^^ They're afraid of ignorance and hysteria, which are considerable. There are people who think that eating genetically engineered plants will turn you into a mutant and that eating irradiated food will make you glow in the dark. The articles I've seen in the popular press are ludicrous in how they churn up fears based on nothing. If I were running those companies, I think I'd rather not have to deal with all of that with labeling.
