California Proposition 37- Labels on Genetically Engineered Food Defeated

California Proposition 37- Labels on Genetically Engineered Food Defeated

California’s Proposition 37 requiring labels on genetically engineered food was defeated yesterday.  Supporters of this initiative stated that people have the right to know what is in their food while opponents argued that labeling genetically modified food would cause an increase in price.  Many European countries already require labeling on genetically modified food.  What are your thoughts about this vote?
