California: Sen. Boxer seeks nationwide labeling of genetically modified foods

The following is an edited excerpt.

California voters failed to pass the measure last year, which would have made the state the first to require labeling for genetically-modified foods.

But Boxer is getting wide-ranging support from chefs and restaurateurs in the Bay Area.
