California voters reject food labeling initiative

Compiled by Kathleen M. Dutro

California farmers and ranchers are grateful the state’s voters rejected a California Farm Bureau-opposed ballot initiative (Proposition 37) that would have required foods containing genetically engineered ingredients to carry a special, California-only label.

“We're pleased that voters saw the many flaws in Proposition 37 and rejected it,” said Paul Wenger, California Farm Bureau president. “It would have created confusion about food safety and raised food costs, and it would have created all sorts of complications for family farmers and others who grow or sell food.”
