Prop 37 Will Determine Whether Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) Will Be Labeled

Thu, 11 Oct 2012 14:17:57 EST

California voters will soon decide whether to require disclosure of the presence of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in raw and processed foods. If Proposition 37 passes, food manufacturers will be obligated to either add a label stating the presence of GMOs or develop a new formula for their product not containing GMOs, according to the Huffington Post.

Additionally, supermarkets will be compelled to ensure all products on their shelves are labeled correctly.

If voters approve Proposition 37, California will become the first state in this country to require food made from plants and animals with altered genetic material to be specified on the label for consumers. This will also forbid manufacturers from marketing their products as 'natural' if they contain GMOs.

So far, opponents of the rule have raised $35 million in attempt to overpower Proposition 37. It supporters have only raised one-tenth of this amount.

'GMOs have become more prevalent in the United States; they are found in nearly 70 percent of all processed foods,' states Dr. Jason Dobranic Ph.D., EMSL's Vice President of Microbiology & Life Sciences at LA Testing, a respected food testing laboratory. 'LA Testing detects GMOs in food products for manufacturers and consumers using cutting edge PCR technology.'
