Berkeley City Council considers labeling GM produce

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Berkeley City Council has entered the debate over whether to label genetically modified produce, voting Tuesday night to investigate the possibility of instituting such a policy at the city level.

The approved motion directs the city manager and several city commissions to research the possibility of having grocery stores label all of their genetically modified produce — one form of genetically modified organism. Specifically, the city will examine which stores the policy would apply to, how the requirement would be enforced and how produce would be labeled.
