Corporations Sell Organic Yet Fight Consumers’ Right to GMO Labeling

Corporations owning some of the nation’s most popular organic brands (Horizon, Silk, Kashi, Cascadian Farms, R.W. Knudsen’s, etc.) have joined Monsanto and the biotechnology industry in fighting California citizen initiative, Proposition 37, that will mandate GMO labeling.
 
Why should we in Idaho and elsewhere care about Prop 37? Democratic and Republican administrations, and Congress, have repeatedly ignored the overwhelming majority of Americans who favor labeling genetically engineered food in the marketplace. Our politicians seem to be listening to corporate executives instead of the citizenry. But in California, the people have a right to craft laws of their choosing. Proposition 37, on the ballot in California on November 6, would mandate labeling of foods containing genetically engineered ingredients. If prop 37 passes in California, companies will then likely be forced to label GMOs nationwide.
