WASHINGTON – Voters in California will go to the polls next week to decide whether or not the state should require mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods.
Proposition 37, as it’s known, “requires labeling of food sold to consumers made from plants or animals with genetic material changed in specified ways [and] prohibits marketing such food, or other processed food, as ‘natural.’”
Voice of Russia correspondent Stephen Schaber spoke with Vincent Wiraatmadja, a second-year law student at the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law, to discuss the ballot initiative and its implications.
