I support the labeling of food with genetically modified ingredients. Consumers have the right to know what’s in their food.
It was extremely disappointing that a ballot measure was defeated last year in Washington state, where I live, to adopt GMO labeling. One voter that I talked to said he didn’t think Washington should be the first state to adopt it.
Large corporations that develop and sell GMO food spent millions to defeat the Washington measure.
This year, nearly $21 million was spent to beat a similar measure in Oregon. It was narrowly defeated by 809 votes. Since the vote was so close, a recount is being conducted.
