Great loss for the nation, from California ... by gimleteye
A tidal wave of corporate farming money swamped Proposition 37, that would have required the labeling of food with GMO components (genetically modified organisms). What a shame. Prop 37 would have mandated labels on “raw or processed food offered for sale to consumers if the food is made from plants or animals with genetic material changed in specified ways.” It would also prohibit any food with genetically modified (GM) ingredients from being labeled as “natural." The politics of food will wait for another battle to protect consumers. Thank DuPont, PepsiCo, and Monsanto for the havoc to our food supply.
