California Rejected Genetically Engineered Food Labeling

Californian state voters rejected the Proposition 37 or Prop 37 by 55 to 45 percent which is according to Foodie Cess Adventures, "is The California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act which will require manufacturers to label all food items that contain genetically engineered ingredients." she continued, "It also includes prohibition of using the word "Natural" in a food label. Organic foods that are certified would be exempt."

The Golden State decided that they don't need labeling food GMOs in the products they buy and eventually eat. It was the least expected result and truly a reversal when it started with two-to-one support. 9 out of 10 Americans are known to support GE food labeling according to Food Safety News, a known news source of all things Food Safety.
