Proposition 37—Labeling of Genetically Engineered Foods

Proposition 37 will be on today's General Election ballot. This measure is opposed by CLFP. It would ban the sale of tens of thousands of perfectly-safe, common grocery products only in California unless they are specially repackaged, relabeled or remade with higher cost ingredients. Prop 37 is not a simple labeling measure. It will increase grocery bills for California families by up to $400 a year; add more government bureaucracy and taxpayer costs; will create a new way for trial lawyers to file shakedown lawsuits; and includes loopholes and exemptions which make no sense and without providing any health or safety benefits. Prop 37 is opposed by a broad coalition of family farmers, scientists, doctors, business, labor, taxpayers and consumers. CLFP urges its member companies to get out to vote against Proposition 37!
