The Right-To-Know campaign has gathered enough signatures (an impressive 850,000) for an initiative to require GMO labeling to be on the California ballot on Nov. 6.
If voters approve, the measure would require food manufacturers to identify genetically engineered ingredients on the labels of food products sold in California.
“Californians will join citizens of over 40 countries including all of Europe, Japan and even China who have the right to know they are eating food containing genetically engineered ingredients, in order to make informed choices about what they eat and feed their children,” says campaign spokeswoman Stacy Malkan.
The campaign is currently working on verifying signatures to guarantee a spot on the November ballot.
