UPDATED-Controversy on Proposition 37- GMO Labelling

California Voters have Defeated Proposition 37, a November 6, 2012 voter ballot initiative that would have required " ... labeling on raw or processed food offered for sale to consumers if made from plants or animals with genetic material changed in specified ways..."

Details of the vote are posted on the home page of California Secretary of State.


Today  (November 6th, 2012) California voters will vote on Proposition 37, which would require labeled identification of genetically engineered or modified ingredients and foods. 

Yesterday, Food Seminars International (FSI) presented "Food Fight: Are GMO's "Alright" or "Frankenfood"? " where Alexis Baden-Mayer (a Consumer Activist ) and Thomas P. Redick (Global Environmental Ethics Counsel) debated the GMO labeling issue. You can view the webinar recording here.
