Another Hope For Getting GMO Labeling

GMOlabelWhile the California Ballot Initiative to require GMO labeling on all products was narrowly defeated after Monsanto, Dow and other companies spent $50 million dollars on advertising, there’s new hope on the horizon.

Activists in Washington State delivered 350,000 signatures to the state which guarantees that voters will be able to vote on whether to require GMO labeling on products in Washington.

Part of the optimism in Washington State is because wheat farmers, apple farmers and fishermen all support mandatory labeling. The newly elected Governor, Jay Inslee, is a long-time supporter of GMO labeling.

So…stay tuned, the fight to get GMO products labeled is going into its next phase.
