I agree with Olli that it would contribute to mass hysteria, in a sense, without cause. As Olli also mentioned, virtually all plants and animals have been "genetically modified" at this point in history and the only real concern is potential (and very hypothetical) increased allergenicity. Just buy organic foods and don't worry about it.
There is a difference between the gradual selection done by farmers and breeders in the past, and today's possibilities.
