Well, at least California has something right. While the federal Senate overwhelmingly voted against GMO labeling in June, California voters will get the opportunity to vote on this issue for their state, in November. Even very liberal senators, like Al Franken, are in the pockets of big agribusiness companies, as is the USDA.
The California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act is simple: The initiative would simply require food sold in retail outlets to be labeled if it contains genetically engineered ingredients. That is it, folks, all we want with a labeling law is to know what we are buying so we can make our own decision on whether we want to eat GMOs or not.
