Podcast: Battle over Genetically Modified Foods Goes to Voters

Thursday, June 14, 2012

The California Secretary of State's office has announced that the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act to label genetically engineered foods will be on the state's November ballot. The historic initiative would be the first law in the United States requiring labeling of a wide range of genetically engineered foods.

"We're thrilled that Californians will have the opportunity this November to vote for the right to know what's in our food," said Stacy Malkan, a spokesperson for the California Right to Know campaign and Green Party member. "This initiative is pretty simple. It's about our fundamental right to make informed choices about the food we eat and feed our families."
 
Listen to Malkan speaking in support of the initiative on the Battle over Genetically Modified Foods Goes to Voters podcast on KCRW, National Public Radio station based at Santa Monica College.
 
The Green Party of California (GPCA) has long supported requiring labelling of genetically modified foods, and endorses Prop 37: The California Right to Know Act.
