California, label genetically engineered food!

Label genetically engineered food

A bill to label genetically engineered (GE) food is moving through the California legislature, and it's up for a vote by the State Senate this week.

Authored by Senator Noreen Evans, SB 1381 is a simpler, clearer version of Proposition 37. And while it was narrowly defeated in 2012, polls both before and after the Prop 37 election showed 67% of Californians supported a state GMO labeling law. But the opposition, including Monsanto and other GE corporations, was able to pull ahead by spreading misinformation about the initiative.   

With this new bill, we now have another opportunity to ensure GE food is clearly labeled, as a majority of Californians want. We have a right to know what’s in our food and how it’s grown.    

Contact your State Senator today and make sure they support this important bill. And if you live in Senator Evans' district, please thank her!
