Proposition 37 defeated in California

A measure to require labeling of genetically modified foods was defeated Tuesday.

Proposition 37 was the second time nationwide that voters have been asked to decide about labeling GMOs. Oregon voters rejected a similar measure 10 years ago. Advocates concerned about potential health and environmental impacts of genetic engineering have also pushed – unsuccessfully – for food labeling laws in 19 state legislatures and submitted a petition to the federal Food and Drug Administration  earlier this year.
