Tag: Proposition 37
California’s Proposition 37, the genetically-engineered (GE) foods labeling initiative, failed to pass by a very narrow margin. But that does not mean the labeling fight is over, nor does it mean proponents of honesty in food labeling cannot get even with the opposition by actively boycotting the corporations responsible for helping kill the initiative.
In the face of unrelenting deceptive advertising funded by giant chemical and processed food corporations to the tune of nearly $50 million, California’s Proposition 37, calling for a simple label on genetically engineered food, narrowly lost with 47 percent of the vote. We will continue to build a robust national grassroots campaign to push for mandatory labeling across the country.
We Californians have a tremendous opportunity this Nov. 6. We can be the first state in the country that requires food companies to label foods that contain genetically engineered ingredients, also called GMOs. If you think we deserve this information, please vote yes on Proposition 37.
