Anti-GM ‘ambulance chasers’ poised to enter ‘litigation heaven’ if Prop 37 passes

| | August 13, 2012

The US Food and Drug Administration says requiring special labels for foods that contain ingredients from genetically modified crops would be “inherently misleading” to consumers – that is exactly what proponents of GM food labeling are hoping for. People inherently side with the precautionary principle and there is no requirement that ballot initiatives be written clearly or well; the assumption is the public will figure it out.

The American Medical Association agrees with the USDA and wrote two months ago, “There is no scientific justification for special labeling of bioengineered foods.”

And yet we are going to get it, and the cost, because spin doctors are calling it ‘awareness’.
