Prop 37: An initiative in need of its own warning label

caliprop
Even for shoppers wishing to single out genetically engineered foods, Prop 37 doesn’t deliver what it promises. Cheeses made with a genetically engineered clotting agent? Beer and wine fermented with genetically engineered yeasts? Milk from cows injected with an engineered growth hormone? They’re all exempt, but corn or soybean oil from genetically engineered crops – which contain no DNA from the plants themselves – would be captured. Such inconsistencies make it clear that Prop 37 isn’t about giving consumers the information they need to make informed choices; it’s about rewarding politically connected interest groups and punishing others.
