Law Pertaining to Genetically Modified Food to Be Voted on Tomorrow
Tomorrow, Californians will vote on an initiative that could have wide-reaching ramifications for food safety. Proposition 37, if passed, would require food manufacturers to label any food products that have been genetically modified. However, numerous food producers have gathered in a bid to fight this initiative, spending an estimated $46 million in ad space to get the proposition voted down by voters. Supporters of the measure say that consumers deserve to know how their food has been made and what’s inside it, while the opposition contends that prices will go up dramatically if the measure is passed.
